Handbrake J-Turn: After high-performance instructor Phillipe Létourneau gives everyone lessons on how to do a 180-degree handbrake skid turn from driving straight ahead at 40 km/h, the contestants must attempt to perform this maneuver within limited confines. Shelby does this on his second attempt, while for Ed, it takes six attempts – largely because he had used the footbrakes instead. For everyone else, this takes four attempts – Jason because of turning too soon or too late, Jennifer over using the footbrakes instead of the hand brake, and Billie-Jean because of not looking where she wanted to go.
S-Bend Race: In the Broken Hearts challenge, a frustrated Jennifer had asked for instructions on how to move the car laterally – but nevertheless got herself stuck. In this challenge, the method to do so, known as the S-bend, will be given to everyone. The contestants must use the S-bend to maneuver their car sideways towards a concrete barrier, and then back towards their starting point. Contestants will be racing against each other, and each car has paint rollers mounted so as to clearly see contact with the barriers on the three closed-off sides. Jason has the privilege of being the odd-man out, driving as Andrew demonstrates the challenge. He is also the fastest to finish at 12 minutes, and is grateful for the show staff not allowing him to give up driving during the Cool Bus challenge. Shelby, racing against Jennifer is the slowest at the challenge, having taken 30 minutes to drive off of the starting position (because he turned forward and reversed the way he came, a move that had been done many times by Shelby before – and had affectionately been given the name "sawing the bow"), and another 30 minutes to finish after doing this. He also had the most paint contacts with 12, a far cry from everyone else (Jason had none, while Jennifer had only one).
Driving Off-Road: In this challenge, purposely-built by a local 4 × 4 club for this show, the drivers must take an off-road truck and drive through several off-road obstacles (such as a series of pits, a rock garden, and over branches), which includes a series of hairpin turns. At the end of the course, they must reverse through it back to the starting point. Ed is the first to go, and, unlike previous challenges, keeps his cool as Elizabeth is screaming, and makes an acceptable run. In another twist, the contestant will be in the passenger seat of the contestant following them (instead of their nominators, as with Elizabeth with Ed). Each contestant will also pass on a piece of safety advice when doing this challenge – driving the challenge with their thumbs up (as jerky movement will cause thumb injury). Ed (who was given the advice by Andrew) does this to Jason, whose run was acceptable, but Jason forgets the safety message as Shelby takes the wheel. Shelby has the worst (as in most reckless) run of the day (although Jason breaks the driver-side mirror in his run), and convinces Jennifer that her run is better than his (although her reverse run goes off-course on several occasions). Billie-Jean, going last, has the best run of the day, patient in both directions.
The Water-Tank Challenge: In the annual tradition, the contestants must go through an obstacle course with a roof-mounted water tank filled with 200 litres of water. If the contestants do not brake smoothly, the contents of the water tank will drain though a series of tubes leading to the occupants inside the car. This year's twist, however, is that at the end of the obstacle course, is a high-speed portion: the drivers must slowly accelerate up to 30 km/h and slowly brake. Only Jason is prepared for the challenge (himself and Adrian having worn a shower cap), largely because he has to repeat the acceleration portion five times – either because of not keeping up speed or hitting a side barrier while accelerating. Shelby loses the least amount of water (20 litres), but makes the serious mistake of leaving the car in drive while he exits the car to remove an obstacle that had lodged itself under the car. Billie-Jean's run causes her make-up to run, while Jennifer – wearing waterproof mascara – regretted her choice of clothes (a set of white pants that had gone translucent when wet). Ed's run had Elizabeth screaming repeatedly whenever he got wet, but again he maintained composure and lost only 25 litres of water.
At the end of the show, only Dr. Gembora had the dissenting opinion on who was the most improved driver, as the rest had thought Shelby had improved the most. However, everyone agrees that this was not enough for Shelby to graduate, due to his horrible off-road challenge and his critical mistake in the water-tank challenge. As a result, the choice to graduate was painfully obvious: Billie-Jean, shortlisted but passed over three times due to someone else having a breakout performance, gets her just reward, as she graduates, having accomplished all of her goals in rehabilitation.
