Limo Figure-Eight Challenge: To teach them proper mirror usage, and further illustrate the concept of front-end swing, the drivers are each placed at the wheel of a 1991 Cadillac Limousine, with the other six drivers as their passengers. They are then tasked with reversing the vehicle around a figure-eight course of foam blocks, wheel rims and aluminum trash cans, with finishing the course with few or no hits considered more of a priority than getting it done quickly. Travis is up first, and despite being slow and needing more than a little advice from Andrew, finishes the course with only a couple of glancing hits. Breanna also fares respectably well, hitting seven things early on, but getting it together as the challenge goes on.
Adam is given a limo driver's hat and jacket by Andrew for his run, and like Breanna he has a slow and shaky start, but improves as the challenge goes on. Julie finishes the challenge with the fastest time thus far, though this causes her to have a couple of hits throughout her run.
Melanie both has the slowest run so far and hits more objects than any of the previous drivers, but her performance is still considered respectable considering her lack of practice at reversing. Shayne is another driver who initially has difficulty, but improves as the course goes on, managing to complete the second half of the figure-eight with no difficulty. Ashley is the last to take the course, and after some initial trouble manages the first part of the figure-eight near-flawlessly; after undermining a foam block-perched Andrew while straightening out, however, she completely loses her nerve and falls apart in the second half of the challenge.
The Trough: In this challenge, which is designed to both test the drivers' knowledge of where their wheels are and further educate them on front-end swing, they each have to drive the Suzuki Sidekick through a short course made up of concrete barriers placed on their side, without letting the wheels touch the ground between the barriers. Each driver will get three attempts. Julie takes the challenge first, and quickly completes it with no major issues, other than momentarily getting stuck near the end. Adam seemingly grasps the challenge at first, but after falling off in his first run, he loses his nerve and does successively worse in his next two runs, failing the challenge. Travis quickly fails all three of his runs, due to either oversteering or understeering on the turns. Before her run, Melanie admits that she didn't understand the lesson Andrew gave her before the challenge, forcing him to demonstrate it again; despite this, she fails all three runs by turning too tightly, while also failing to use her mirrors. Ashley remembers to adjust her mirrors, but misinterprets the lesson and tries to take the turns tighter instead of looser on her first two runs, then over-compensates and turns too wide on her final attempt. Breanna seemingly grasps the lesson, but fails by not turning quite wide enough on her first two runs, and then turning too wide on her third. Shayne has trouble even remembering the lesson, and Shanna tries to help him, but this only succeeds in causing the two to argue, and Shayne subsequently fails all his runs.
Camaro Challenge: The Eye of the Needle For one of the show's longest-running challenges, the drivers have to drive the Camaro at 80 km/h through a series of five foam arches. Melanie is up first, and after Andrew has to remind her that the intended lesson of the challenge is "look where you want to go" instead of "look where you're going," she ends up smashing three of the arches. Prior to Julie's run, Andrew says that barring it being a complete disaster, she'll almost certainly graduate this episode; she subsequently hits the first two arches, and Andrew attributes her failure to her wedge shoes, to which Julie says she won't wear them while driving in the future.
Breanna initially forgets to take the car out of parking mode, and ends up smashing three of the arches, and also one of the Camaro's side panels. Travis speeds up to 90 km/h and ends up smashing all but the last arch, which he can't even steer towards in time due to going too fast; Andrew brands this the worst Eye of the Needle challenge in the show's entire history (surpassing even Angelina Marcantognini's performance from Canada's Worst Driver Ever, in which she destroyed every single arch, and was the final challenge she attempted before being removed from the show on medical grounds). Adam initially seems resigned to failure, but posts the best run so far, smashing the first arch and lightly hitting the final one, but getting through all the ones in-between just fine. Shayne performs almost as badly as Travis, smashing all but the middle arch, and his extremely pessimistic outlook to the challenge (and needing to smoke a cigarette before becoming calm enough to be able to attempt it) makes Andrew concerned that there are deeper issues at work with him. Ashley is the final driver to take the challenge, and she ends up being too scared to even attempt to drive through all the arches, deliberately missing the second-last one. Andrew forces her to take the course again (minus the first two arches, which she smashed on her first attempt, and cannot be replaced due to a lack of time), but she speeds up to 120 km/h, hits all three of the arches and almost spins out, causing her to break down in tears.
When meeting with the experts, Ashley admits that the experience of the previous challenge made her physically ill. Julie is the only person who expresses any wish to graduate, and vows never to be distracted at the wheel again.
In the end, the experts agree that the decision facing them is obvious, and no discussion is needed. Julie, who only narrowly missed graduating the previous episode, is the panel's unanimous choice to graduate this time around.
