Reverse Figure-Eight: In order to educate the drivers on the concept of front-end swing and encourage them to use their mirrors, each driver is required to reverse a minivan containing the other six drivers around a figure-eight course. Lou takes the challenge first and proves extremely nervous, finishing with a total of 15 hits.
Before his run, Tyler is forced to openly admit to his drink-driving habits, which gets a particularly disapproving reaction from the other drivers and nominators, especially Mike and Lou, due to the former's driving-related injuries and the latter's losing a friend to a dangerous driver. Tyler's actual run is not shown, though is implied by Andrew not to have been overly impressive. Diana lights an incense stick before her run, only for Krystal to angrily grab it and throw it out of the van, complaining about the smell, leading to Andrew reprimanding both women. While Diana's run isn't too bad, she spends too much time switching between mirrors and causes 8 bits. Mike has the best run so far, with only a single hit, though Andrew and Christian remain concerned about his ability to drive in public. Daniella also does well, hitting only two things.
Krystal, who had already been reprimanded for not paying attention during Andrew's demonstration, as well as her rudeness toward Diana, drives so carelessly and quickly that she bursts one of the van's tires, causing her run to be halted. Amrinder has easily the best run of the day, not stopping or hitting anything, and even doing so with all the nominators in the van in addition to the drivers.
Road Signs: The drivers are each tested on their knowledge of common Canadian road signs. None of the drivers perform particularly well on this test, although Krystal is the worst, getting just 2 out of 10 right.
The Water Tank Challenge: For this year's incarnation of this signature challenge, the drivers each have to navigate a 1992 Buick Roadmaster through an obstacle course. A tank containing 200 litres of water is mounted on the roof, and any less-than-smooth driving will lead to a soaking for the driver and their nominator. Even Andrew is unable to carry out the course perfectly, losing 20 litres in his demonstration. Tyler is up first, and his sharp, erratic braking leads to him losing 185 of the 200 litres, setting the bar very low. Daniella gets off to a terrible start, crashing through the barrier at the end of the initial straight and losing a lot of water, though she does a little better in the rest of her run, losing 110 litres. Lou requires two attempts on the initial straight after suffering a panic attack on her first go, and then has to be guided by Andrew for much of her run. While she loses less than Tyler, with 120 litres, she takes by far the longest to complete the challenge.
Krystal ends up quitting the challenge after only driving a few car lengths, during which she still gets soaked thanks to erratic acceleration and sharp braking. Diana drives too hastily during her run, causing her to lose 150 litres. Mike has one of the better runs so far, losing slightly over 100 litres, but his slow response times still prove a major issue.
Amrinder, whom Akash is unable to accompany in this challenge due to an old back injury, has a less-than-enthusiastic Tim in the car with him. Despite Amrinder committing a major blunder when he makes a wrong turn and nearly leaves the course, causing him and Tim to get soaked when he's forced to brake, he still has the best performance for the second challenge in a row, losing 80 litres.
Mustang Challenge: The Eye of the Needle: For this challenge, which has been present in every season of the show so far, the drivers each have to navigate the car at a fixed 70 km/h through five arches at staggered positions. Diana, who is forced to drive with no distractions, passes with ease. Lou spends her entire run repeating the phrase "look where you want to go" to herself, and despite her best efforts, smashes all but the first arch. Daniella gets very nervous in her run and hits two arches, breaking one of the car's headlights in the process.
Amrinder takes his run much too fast, at 90 km/h, and ends up hitting all but one of the arches, ruining what Andrew points out would have been a near-certain graduation this episode. Before Tyler's run, Andrew also reveals that the track section where this challenge is attempted has been nicknamed the "Flora Turn," in reference to Canada's Worst Driver 8 co-"winner" Flora Wang, who span off the track at 140 km/h. Tyler recounts seeing this when watching that season; unfortunately he then unwittingly proceeds to emulate Flora's run, speeding up to 120 km/h before hitting an arch, then losing control and leaving the track. After witnessing this, Andrew is left wondering whether Tyler should drive at all, even leaving aside his driving under the influence. Mike does well initially, but speeds up to 100 km/h and smashes the third arch. More concerningly, he admits being unable to remember the lesson that Philippe gave him earlier tht day. Krystal gets through the arches correctly, but her run is judged to be a failure because she sped up to 110 km/h near the end.
Tyler admits to the judges that this episode has been a wake-up call, both in terms of the other drivers' reaction to his drinking and driving, and realising that he's not as good of a driver as he thinks he is. Krystal again wants to graduate, but is immediately shot down by the judges, and does not help her cause by implying that nothing Tim has taught her has been of any use.
Amrinder and Diana put themselves forward for graduation, and the judges consider both, due to the former being the only person to pass two challenges this episode, and the latter's exemplary Eye of the Needle performance. Tim and Shyamala back Amrinder to graduate for being the more technically skilled of the two, while Andrew and Philippe back Diana, as they are unconvinced that Amrinder has reformed his speeding habits, but are satisfied that Diana has learned to drive without distractions. Cam is left to break the tie, and decides on Amrinder, who becomes the season's second graduate (and also wins a $20 bet with Krystal that he would graduate before her).
