Paddy Driver (born in Johannesburg, 13 May 1934) is a former Grand Prix motorcycle road racer and a racing driver from South Africa.

He competed on the Grand Prix motorcycle racing circuit from 1959 to 1965. His best result was in 1965 when he rode a Matchless to a third-place finish in the 500cc world championship behind Mike Hailwood and Giacomo Agostini.

He participated in two World Championship Formula One Grands Prix, scoring no championship points.

From 1971 he entered his own McLaren under the guise of Team Personality, finishing third in the series final classification. In 1974 he was hired by Team Gunston, racing a Formula One Lotus 72, and repeating his third place.
