For at least two decades Kieran Davidson has been attempting to improve his driving, and this time he is called in one of Australia’s top politicians called”the fixer” to help.
The Adelaide learner driver, now 20, made waves on the web when a video of his stressful driving course with his parents moved viral on social networking.
His YouTube journey started when he decided to gaffer tape his camera into the dash of his parents’ white hatchback until they took him on his drive.
The video has been viewed more than 250 million times and has been featured in several nations and social networking pages.
However, this time the resilient learner has got back behind the wheel for another lesson, this time together with Defense Minister Christopher Pyne.
Why is a politician giving driving lessons?
Mr Davidson said Mr Pyne consented to perform the driving movie — posted on YouTube this day — in an effort to”mend his driving abilities”.
He explained that Mr Pyne appeared to enjoy the lesson, regardless of the obvious stress.
The pair drove around his neighborhood and he thought he had already improved.
I was able to get in touch with Christopher’s people and he agreed to do the movie,” he said.
There was not any scary moments, Mr Pyne was a really terrific teacher and really helped me improve.”
Throughout the movie, Mr Pyne said he had had experience in teaching others to drive before but the driveway with Kieran was on a different level.
Mr Pyne took a jab in Mr Davidson, reminding him to be extra careful on the roads.
The defense force would come down on you like a tonne of bricks,” Mr Pyne said.
I don’t know about fixing your driving Kieran, a great deal of people do say that you are very bad.”
Mr Pyne also known to his famous”fixer” remark which he made while the ministry for education in a Sky News interview with David Speers in 2015.
Mr Pyne said David Speers won a Walkley Award for the interview and did not discuss it with him.
“Tell David Speers to give me my Walkley back,” he said.
Mr Pyne has been famous for his existence on social networking, with lots of his articles gaining traction on the internet, including a photograph he submitted while travelling on a tram between meetings in Adelaide back in January.
So, has his driving enhanced?
Despite numerous lessons, Mr Davidson has not progressed on a provisional permit since getting his learner’s permit in 2016.
However he did say he learnt a lot from Mr Pyne — who had more success than his parents did in educating him.
“I believe Christopher Pyne is an exceptional instructor, he was anxious at first but had some great laughs and really made me improve quite a bit,” he said.
I believe he was more calm then my parents were still pretty scared.
Overall I think Christopher taught me a few useful hints when stalling the car, shifting gearsturning around corners as well as parking suddenly.”
The movie was originally filmed last Saturday morning, but Mr Pyne’s office had set its release on hold till it was approved now.
