OK. Consider it this way - I'll drive for you IF, and only IF, you can drive properly. Leave me alone - and I'll never forgive you.
Hilary King

The Driver is a Malibu Club asset mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City which protagonist Tommy Vercetti does independently, located in Vice Point, Vice City.

Mission

Tommy, Ken and Phil are all in the club, with Tommy saying that the heist plan is coming together nicely, and the only thing left to do is to hire a driver. Ken suggests himself, but Phil suggests Hilary King, describing him as a great driver. Phil calls Hilary, and asks if he can offer his services to Tommy. He says yes, but only if Tommy beats him in a race.

Tommy goes outside to Hilary, who is inside his Sabre Turbo. He explains that if Tommy loses to him, he will not work for Tommy. Tommy then gets inside a Sentinel and races against Hilary. He passes through all checkpoints scattered around Vice Beach, all while being chased by the police for illegal racing. Later on, he eventually passes the finish line first, and Hilary agrees to work for him.

Transcript
Tommy Vercetti is in the office of the Malibu Club with Ken Rosenberg, who's snorting cocaine yet again, Cam Jones and Phil Cassidy, now thinking of a getaway driver for the upcoming job.
Tommy: Things are starting to come together nicely here.
Ken: What's the plan, Tommy? Que pasa, amigo?
Tommy: The plan is that you keep doing it like a moron.
Phil chuckles at Tommy's remark.
Tommy: Anyhow, we need a driver.
Ken: Tommy, I'll do it. I can drive!
Phil: (laughs) You want Hilary, mister, not some smart-talking law school chump. Hilary's the real deal. You ain't never seen anyone drive so fast, I'll give him a call here.
Phil dials on his phone.
Phil: Hey Hil, it's Phil. How's it going? No, don't talk, we'll reminisce later. You want to do me a favor? I got me a guy from up north. No, no, I don't think he was in the service, but he wants a driver, for a bit of action. Okay, I understand.
Phil hangs up.
Tommy: What'd he say?
Phil: Well, he'll do it, no problem. Well, there might be a little problem - see, he has abandonment issues. Seems he can't work for anyone who can't beat him, something to do with his momma. Anyway, he wants to race you first, said he'd meet you outside.
Tommy leaves the Malibu Club.
Tommy: Abandonment issues, what is this freak? Why can't I meet someone normal for a change?
Tommy goes to see Hilary King, who's sitting in his Sabre Turbo outside the club.
Hilary: You Tommy? Oh, of course you're Tommy, I mean...why else would anyone want to speak to me? OK, consider it this way - I'll drive for you if, and only if, you can drive properly. Leave me alone - and I'll never forgive you.
Tommy races against Hilary in a Sentinel. Once the countdown finishes, Tommy and Hilary start racing.
VCPD Dispatch: Illegal street race in progress in Vice Point. Calling all officers. Street racers, this is illegal and forbidden!
While being chased by the cops, Tommy races Hilary across Ocean Beach and Washington Beach until he reaches the Malibu Club.
Hilary: OK, I'll drive for you, but please, treat me bad.
Hilary drives away.
