Original Airdate: November 23, 2009

  • The Lane Change Rally – The contestants will attempt to pass Andrew, driving a limousine at 25 km/h, twice on an oval circuit. All the contestants will be on the course at the same time, so the challenge will require various lane changes as the contestants will also need to pass each other. Each incorrect lane change will result in requiring an additional pass of the limo. Arun gets into his habit on driving between two lanes, which Cam notes is an offense. Two minutes into the challenge, Father Giles is the first to finish. Jakob exits the course second much later. Angelina repeatedly makes the mistake of checking the wrong side (checking to the right when intending to change to the left lane). Arun, in the meantime, repeatedly cuts off everyone else (first Crystal, then Andrew, both on bad passes, and then Mike from the outside lane into the infield), and has to be dragged off the course for everyone else's safely. Crystal finishes after taking on 9 more passes, and Mike finishes with 19 bad passes, but both are considered to have failed the challenge due to the excessive number of bad passes they each made; the experts also did not feel that Crystal had learned anything from the exercise. Before Angelina finishes, Andrew intentionally drives off the course, but it is a while before Angelina realizes that the challenge has concluded.

  • Driving at Night – The contestants are blindfolded and taken to an undisclosed location 33 km away from the hotels that they are staying during rehab, at an abandoned gas station in Alliston, Ontario. The contestants must take their cars back to the hotel in Barrie, but with another contestant's nominator instead of their own (the contestants are free to arrange who they will pair up with). Angelina's car is discovered to have an expired registration and broken headlights, so her car is intentionally towed to the location. Father Giles is paired with Theresa (who immediately asks for directions), while Jakob is paired with Guy (driving without directions, though fortunately Guy was able to recognise the local landmarks and work out a route). Arun is paired with Stacey, while Mike goes with Sanah. Prior to the challenge, Crystal (paired with Christine) had arranged for an eye exam, and is prescribed a contact lens over her right eye (as she has 20/120 vision out of that eye). She immediately discovers that she tends to drift into oncoming traffic. Meanwhile, Angelina (paired with Jodie), adamant on using her own car, asks her boyfriend Andy half a world away in Indonesia on how to repair her headlight, but eventually calls a tow truck (and sealing up last place). Mike, however, is caught driving 110 km/h in a 50 km/h zone—which Cam notes is a $10,000 fine with immediate license suspension and car impoundment. Father Giles is first to finish, with Jakob finishing 10 minutes later, just as the tow truck arrives for Angelina. Arun finishes third, with Mike coming in fourth. Crystal was the slowest of the drivers who actually participated in the challenge, but her dramatically improved peripheral vision was demonstrated when she was able to narrowly dodge a raccoon on her way to the hotel.

  • Handbrake J-Turn – The contestants are taught by Philippe on how to perform a Forward Handbrake J-Turn (a modified bootleg turn), as first seen on Canada's Worst Driver 3. The key to the technique is to make the car front-heavy by taking the foot off the gas, before using the pendulum effect (turning right before a sudden turn to the left) and the handbrake to swing around (this process is known as a Scandinavian flick). For the challenge, the contestants must accelerate to 50 km/h, making the turn around a foam figure. Contestants have five attempts before being forced to retire. Angelina hits the brakes, and loses control of the car, failing her five attempts. Jakob and Mike both make it on their fifth attempts after a few close calls. Crystal fails her five attempts, her last knocking down the foam figure. Though Arun is next to go (and Father Giles is last), a personal tragedy happens to Crystal while awaiting for the course to reset: she receives word from her mother that her brother-in-law, Tom Stagno, has been killed in an automobile/motorcycle collision. Tom had been killed while riding a motorcycle on Essex County Road 2 near Lakeshore, Ontario when a driver had failed to stop at a stop sign, colliding into him as he tried to proceed across the intersection. The driver of the automobile was charged with failure to yield.

Because of Crystal's personal tragedy, neither Arun nor Father Giles take the challenge, and Crystal is allowed to leave rehab to mourn her personal loss. In the confessionals and in front of the experts, everyone mourns over Crystal's personal tragedy and reflect on their own skills in the process. It is also revealed via footage that all of the drivers of this season fail to yield in their daily driving routines. While speaking to the panel, Father Giles says that hearing of the tragedy has only made him more determined to improve his skills, while Jakob and Angelina admit to causing minor accidents via their own failures to yield, and Mike is confronted by Cam over his excessive speed during the night driving challenge. Out of respect for Tom, no one graduates this episode. The end credits for this episode were silent and featured a dedication to Tom.
