Arriving to Rehab: At Wasaga Beach, Ontario, the eight contestants must drive to the Driver Rehabilitation Centre, following a 40-kilometre course, which, if properly navigated, would take no more than one hour to complete. Maps and written instructions are provided for each contestant. To avoid the notion of a race, the contestants are given staggered starts. Henrietta is the first to leave, followed by Jodi, Matt, Karen, Michael, Colin, Shannon, and Sean.
First to Arrive: Matt is the first to arrive, doing so in 55 minutes. However, he makes 10 moving violations along the way, including an illegal U-turn.
Fastest to Arrive: Colin, despite a promise to Andrew to obey all speed laws, makes enough moving violations (29) to have his license revoked en route, but does arrive in 40 minutes.
Skills Evaluation: In the skills evaluation, the drivers must take their car (a 1978 AMC Pacer) and steer through a tight precision-steering course before accelerating to somewhere between 40 km/h and 50 km/h and taking one of two possible exits, one of which is too short for their car and their roof-mounted cargo: a canoe and a tricycle. Afterwards, they must park their car in reverse, making sure that the canoe does not crash into the wall behind them. As an added surprise, a car at the start of the challenge is rigged to have its doors open whenever the car comes near, which the drivers must avoid.
Best Performer: Sean, despite feeling that this is a race, hits the fewest obstacles with 15 (including the door), all of which were in the precision portion. The speed portion and the parking portions in his run went without incident.
Worst Performer: Colin is easily the worst, due to wanting to trash the Pacer more than completing the course (though, as it was revealed in a later episode, he does manage to eventually finish), which he does by intentionally hitting the obstacles in the precision portion. In short, he does not even try the challenge. Of the contestants that do, though, Karen, aided via direct orders by Allan, hits the obstacles 49 times, including a concrete barrier on the high-speed portion.
Fastest Performer: Matt is the fastest to finish at 3 minutes, but hits the door, struggled through the precision portion, and chooses the wrong exit. In total, he hits 28 obstacles.
Slowest Performer: Jodi visibly breaks down partway though the precision portion, and it takes Jodi three attempts through the high-speed portion due to not maintaining speed. Although it takes her 56 minutes to complete (with 18 hit obstacles), she is the only contestant to miss the door.
