Installing printer driver on Mac

I have a client with two Mac pro laptops. On one of them we have installed the Hp designjet 1055 cm printer by simply going through the list of available drivers that were built in or had come through updates. I wanted to do the same on the other one, but it does not show up in the list and I am not able to find a download for it. They both are running the same OSX operating system with the same updates.  Is there anyway to somehow copy the driver from the good laptop to the one with issue. Thank you,

Connect the printer. Make sure it is turned on and not asleep. Run Software Update on the Mac. It should detect the printer and download the drivers.
