A video of a Cape Town man taking his family’s helper for her very first driving lesson is making headlines — and for all the right reasons.

Cape Town - Earlier this month, News24 reported about a Cape Town man taking his family’s helper, Caroline Ndlovu, for her very first driving lesson with high performance motoring coach/motoring journalist Ernest Page.

'Miss Caroline' as she is fondly known, has been working for Joshua Rubin’s family for more than 10 years and expressed interest in learning to drive.  

The video of Miss Caroline's driving experience went viral and won hearts all over social media.

Naturally, this inspired a sequel. When Page got his hands on the latest Audi RS 3, he thought of giving Caroline another lesson and teaching her about launch control in a much sportier car than the Nissan Micra they used in the first stint.

Page says: "Caroline proved to be a quick learner, and unlike me and many others, didn't stall the car when she first pulled off.

"I love her relationship with Josh and I think this is a shining example how we can empower each other in our daily lives. 
Not with some grand gesture, but even something as simple as a driving lesson.

"The Audi RS3 scared even me the first time so I can't imagine her reaction to the car.

"I drove the car slowly to the location so the first time she experienced the speed was on camera. And the second time was when she drove.

"Her reaction was completely natural."
