Maris Racal asked the help of her boyfriend, Rico Blanco, to teach her how to drive a car.
While she “aced” her driving lessons in the past and has successfully acquired her driver's license, Maris said she still asked Rico to teach her how to drive a car as a “refresher.”
“I-rerefresh ako ni Rico kung pa’no mag-drive ng kotse. Marunong na ako dati pa. I aced my driving lessons and nakakuha na rin ako ng driver’s license pero matagal na kasi akong hindi nagda-drive. So, refresher lang ‘to sa ngayon,” Maris said.
Maris became even more excited to film her driving lessons with Rico because it was apparently the first time the latter joined her for a vlog on her YouTube channel.
“Ito rin ‘yung first video ko with Rico sa YouTube channel ko so medyo nakaka-excite,” Maris said.
Maris shared how she was made to drive along EDSA by her instructor when she did her driving lessons in the past.
“Alam mo ba sa driving lesson ko, dinerecho niya agad ako sa EDSA. Siyempre, from my house, tinuruan na niya ako,” Maris told Rico.
To which Rico answered in jest: “Malapit ka rin kasi si EDSA. Pero kaya pala nagkatrapik-trapik sa EDSA, doon ka pala niya tinuruan.”
When the driving 101 finally started, netizens pointed out how patient and calm Rico is when it comes to teaching Maris even though there were times when the latter would panic.
“Babe, may kotse sa likod. Babe, baka hindi talaga ako meant maging driver,” Maris told Rico at one point.
According to Maris, she finds learning how to drive important especially since some roles require her to drive, which, most often than not, result in her having a double.
“Importante ‘to, babe. What if may role ako na kailangan mag-drive? Laging kumukuha ng double ‘pag nagda-drive eh,” she said.

Rico said Maris still has certain areas to improve on and that he would still continue teaching her.
