Timomatic is thankful for the extra airbags when he jumps into the passenger seat to help teach Channel [V]’s Marty Smiley how to drive in this week’s episode of Learner Dri[V]er. 

While reminding Marty about the importance of indicating, Timomatic reminisces about learning to drive in Darwin’s monsoon rains, and his first musical experiences as part of his family’s band. Tune in this Saturday to hear Timomatic spin a few tales to wind up Marty on the road, and learn more about why he’s not known as “Timomanual”.
