The Figure Eight Redux – Due to the shockingly bad performance in the last Figure Eight challenge (in which Melissa, Crystal, Mike, and Angelina knocked over at least 40 obstacles each), the Figure Eight Challenge returns. This time, the challenge is taken from Canada's Worst Driver 3. In this challenge, two cars begin face-to-face in the middle of the Figure Eight course, and the contestants must reverse all the way around the course. First is Crystal and Arun. Arun is careful, but gets too greedy and reverses too far. While Arun and Crystal argue, Sanah is the only one to notice the sole passing area in the whole course (on one end of the figure-eight where Arun had passed), and further cooperation allows Crystal uses to finish ahead of Arun. Arun, confident in reversing slowly but horrible reversing fast, is given a lesson on how to reverse fast by Andrew. Melissa and Father Giles make up the second heat. Father Giles accidentally steps on the gas pedal instead of the brake while reversing, sending his car out of control and nearly hitting Andrew (stopping only because the car was trapped above a rim). When Andrew forces Wil from the car after seeing Melissa hit too many things, Melissa has no further problems reversing. Mike and Angelina are in the third heat. Christine immediately gets Angelina to drop the coffee and cigarette while reversing, but it only gets her into more trouble, causing Angelina to break down. Meanwhile, Mike has reversed to Angelina's position, on the opposite end of the passing point, causing Mike to be frustrated (though both do eventually finish). Jakob, without a partner, gets to reverse with Andrew. Jakob's only hits were while driving forward, and, during the challenge, admits to a change in driving attitude.
Road Signs – The annual road sign test is given to the contestants. Jakob is the best at signs, at 7/10, while Angelina misses all but one sign.
The S-Turn Challenge – The S-Turn is a lesson that's taught every year in various forms. The challenge is performed in a right-hand drive Nissan S-Cargo, in an S-shaped course. Contestants must move laterally through the S-shaped course using repeated S-turns. Arun, going first, often mistakes forward and reverse gears, and eventually gives up after 52 minutes. Crystal, second, hits 7 things, but picks up the lesson easily. Angelina, is distracted through the challenge due to taking a phone call partway through. Jakob still hits many things, but he is proud at not losing his composure during his run. Mike relies on Jodie the whole way through the challenge. Father Giles repeats the mantra "halfway" through the second half of the course, and hits only one thing in his run. Wil, pledging not to speak during the challenge, breaks his promise two seconds into the challenge, and insults Melissa 16 times in her run.
This leads Andrew to look into Wil's behaviour as a passenger. In a private meeting, Andrew makes Wil listen to footage of himself insulting Melissa. Wil is appalled by what came out of his own mouth, later breaking down in the confessional.
The Eye of the Needle – This year, there are four numbered archways, which the contestants must go through at 70 km/h in order in a standard-transmission Lowrider. Arun hits the obstacles. Father Giles, who, in his youth, drove stick-shift, makes a perfect run. Wil's positive attitude also leads Melissa to drive another perfect run. Crystal repeatedly hits on the right side, and admits that her accidents in the last 15 years are due to not wearing corrective lenses, which are a condition of her driver's license. Jakob makes a perfect run despite poor car handling. Angelina mistakes first gear for third, and as a result, hits two arches. Mike also makes a perfect run without effort.
In deliberation, Melissa reveals to the experts that Wil had told her of his private drive with Andrew, and how he had cried for 15 minutes afterwards. Melissa and Jakob make the experts' shortlist, but Wil's attitude change is the difference maker, as Melissa is named the season's second graduate.
