Mustang Challenge: Speed Kills: In what isn't so much an actual challenge as a demonstration of the effect that even a small amount of excess speed can have, the drivers are each given the task of performing a mini Swerve-and-Avoid course in the Mustang (which has been successfully repaired after the damage Krystal caused in the previous episode), where they're asked to steer around a moose at 50 km/h, 60 km/h and 70 km/h. All of the drivers accomplish the task at 50 km/h, but only a couple of them do it at 60 km/h, and all of them hit the moose at 70 km/h. Krystal has difficulty performing the demonstration, driving at 70 km/h on her first run due to her poor pedal control, which requires Andrew to give her a lesson on how to properly use the accelerator. After this she manages to carry out the demonstration correctly, but still claims that it's okay to speed in certain situations, much to Andrew's annoyance. Meanwhile, Daniella is also given a lesson in highway driving by Tim, in an attempt to calm her nerves.
The Longest Reversing Challenge in the World: This year's incarnation of this challenge has the drivers reversing a 1972 Cadillac Coupe de Ville down a 1-kilometer course made up of various different obstacles, including wheel rims, parked cars, concrete barriers and foam blocks. The drivers are told to take the course at whatever speed they feel comfortable at. Mike is first up and gets off to a poor start, due to going too quickly and not looking out the back window. He does better in the latter parts of the course, finishing with 12 hits, but admits that he'd probably be better off getting rid of his truck and driving a smaller car. Krystal sets a new low for this challenge by knocking over the start sign just getting lined up for the course, and then yelling insults at Andrew when he calls her out on her carelessness. After Steven has to remind her to set her mirrors, Andrew orders him out of the car for her run, in which she knocks over several wheel rims almost immediately, and then starts texting while at the wheel, leading to another argument with Andrew. Steven has to get back in the car just so that she'll actually make an effort; she subsequently speeds and hits several objects, yet rates her performance as an "A+", leaving the experts further questioning her attitude. Lou takes 15 minutes (longer than it took Mike to complete the entire challenge) just to travel a single car length, and still knocks wheel rims over; it eventually takes her 57 minutes to finish. Daniella is the best performer by far at this challenge, finishing in a reasonable time with just 5 hits, which she attributes to reversing being one of the few driving situations not to make her nervous. Tyler tries to complete the challenge by looking exclusively at his driver's-side mirror, instead of looking out the back window, causing him to hit several things. After Andrew reminds him of the correct technique he does better for the remainder of the challenge, finishing with 11 hits.
Forward Handbrake J-Turn: In order to perform this manoeuvre, which Andrew reminds the viewers is considered stunt driving by the authorities and can lead to a person getting a $10,000 fine and instant driving licence suspension if caught performing it on public roads, the drivers have to unbalance the car's steering and then use the handbrake to turn the car around 180 degrees. The challenge itself requires the drivers to enter a confined space and use the technique to dodge around a foam person featuring the face of the driver's nominator. Each driver has 5 attempts. Lou fails her first attempt by hitting the foot brake instead of the handbrake, and then fails her remaining four attempts by consistently leaving it much too late to apply the handbrake. Daniella approaches the challenge with the expectation that she'll fail, and fails her first run by hitting the foot brake, and then her second when Chantal's face blows off the foam person, causing her to panic and completely lose control. On her third attempt, however, she manages to pass. Krystal fails on her first run by forgetting to pull the handbrake until it's far too late, but succeeds on her second run. However, she continues to re-iterate that she will still text at the wheel and drive over the speed limit (though "only" by 20 km/h), causing Andrew to tell her that if she continues with that attitude it'll guarantee her the title of Canada's Worst Driver. Mike easily passes the challenge at the first attempt. Tyler, who takes the challenge in one of Andrew's trademark purple shirts (with Andrew himself wearing Tyler's shirt), repeatedly hits the footbrake, eventually crashing into the foam Jana on his third run. He narrowly fails his fourth run, carrying out the technique correctly but clipping the foam Jana, and then more severely fails his final run by understeering and braking too late.
Though Daniella and Mike are noted to have been the two best performers in both of the episode's challenges, Mike says that he still doesn't feel ready to graduate, while Daniella's admission that she occasionally "blacks out" at the wheel instantly destroys any chance of her graduating this episode. Lou and Tyler both admit that they're nowhere near ready to graduate, while Krystal, for the first time this season, finally admits that she's a poor driver and needs a lot more help.
Mike is the only person who makes the experts' shortlist, but they immediately decide to honour his wish to stay. As a result, the episode ends, as usual for the fifth episode of a Canada's Worst Driver season, with no graduation.
