Eight of the most appalling drivers from across the nation make their way to the Rehabilitation Centre. After safely navigating themselves to the Rehab Centre, it’s now up to each driver to prove that they possess the necessary skill to graduate. As tradition would have it, the drivers begin the episode by demonstrating their basic driving skill in the Assessment Challenge. For some drivers, it appears their time in Rehab will be an extended stay. Predictably, the panel of experts are amazed at the lack of skill this group possesses. It's anybody's guess at this point as to who ultimately will be named Canada’s Worst Driver.
The Drive To Rehab: As always, the first challenge is for the drivers to drive themselves to rehab, with Niagara Falls being this year's starting location. Tyler is first to make the journey, and even before setting off he earns a reprimand from Andrew for his admission of drink-driving. He subsequently speeds throughout his drive and runs at least one red light. Daniella is petrified by the thought of driving on the highway, even if only for a brief duration, and subsequently demands that Chantal make all the decisions during their drive, to the point of having Chantal take over for part of it. Diana spends much of her drive reading and looking at cards, leaving Joedy anxious throughout the drive. Mike proves very slow in his drive, and tends to drift between lanes. Cody gets to rehab without any major issues, as does Lou, albeit she proves extremely nervous throughout. Amrinder speeds, texts and runs several stop signs during his drive.
Krystal is the final driver to make the journey, and Andrew reveals that due to her dangerous driving when shooting her audition videos, the camera crew have refused to accompany her for her drive. On top of that, it's revealed that her insurance premium is $10,000 per year, second only to Canada's Worst Driver 6 contestant Scott Schurink as the highest in the show's history. She subsequently commits an extreme number of moving violations during the course of her run, and even goes so far as to tear up the directions that she was given at the start, committing a total of 107 ticketable offences before arriving. Andrew subsequently says that based on what he's seen so far, she looks like the worst driver in the show's history, an assessment which reduces Krystal to tears, but one which she admits may very well be right.
Mustang Challenge: Basic Assessment: After briefly teasing the viewers by suggesting that this year's recurring challenge vehicle will be a huge mobile home, Andrew reveals that it will actually be a 2016 Mustang GT. As with the previous few seasons, the basic assessment requires the drivers to reverse the car through a section of wheel rims, turn it around in an area made up of concrete barriers, and then perform a 50 km/h slalom around five foam people. Krystal is first-up and performs extremely poorly in the slalom, even more so after Andrew has Steven leave her to make her own decisions. She does a little better in the remaining two segments, but fails both due to her stress and lack of focus. Tyler does almost as poorly as Krystal in the reversing section, and then badly damages the car's bumper, before trying to drive the slalom with only one hand on the wheel, predictably failing. Daniella is made to take her entire run without Chantal in the car, so that she will think for herself; her performance ends up being mostly the same as Tyler's, and she also takes the slalom too slowly. Cody manages the rare feat of passing every part of the challenge, causing Andrew to comment that his problem clearly isn't one of skill, but rather his attitude. Mike performs poorly while reversing, but is able to turn the car around in the barriers just fine, only to then hit two foam people on the slalom, much to his frustration. Diana is forced to drive without any of her usual distractions, and passes the first two parts of the course with ease, only to speed on the slalom and clip one of the foam people. Despite her otherwise good performance, the thought of driving without her usual rituals causes her severe stress. Amrinder gets through the reversing section with only three hits, and turns the car around without trouble, only to then speed on the slalom and hit one of the foam people head-on. Lou proves incredibly slow on the first two parts of the course, and then completely loses control on the slalom after panicking and hitting the gas instead of the brakes.
The experts have harsh words for Krystal and Tyler, due to their confrontational attitude and drink-driving habits respectively. Tyler admits from the start that he might be Canada's Worst Driver, but Krystal angrily denies that she's the worst, and the experts are perturbed by her repeated claims that she's not really a bad driver because she's never severely injured anyone. As usual, no-one graduates this episode.
