Definition of codriver

: a driver who rides with and provides assistance to another driver (as during a road rally) This was the very car British driver Stirling Moss took for a spin in the 1955 Mille Miglia.

Out of the corner of his eye, Moss followed his codriver's hand signals, enabling him to take tight corners in a blinding blur.— Bruce Watson
