The Teeter-Totter: In a test of the drivers' pedal control, each driver is given ten minutes to balance a car on a teeter-totter, with proper clutch control paramount to success; unlike past versions of the challenge, this time an automatic transmission car is being used, due to previous drivers on the show having a habit of destroying the clutch on manual transmission cars. Ashley is up first, and after some initial difficulties, succeeds in passing her first challenge of the season. Shayne likewise has some initial difficulty, but soon gets to grips with the challenge and passes.
Melanie gets off to a bad start, repeatedly confusing the gas and brake, along with the "drive" and "parking" modes, but gets it together and passes. Travis's run turns out near-identical to Melanie's, with initial mix-ups over his gears and pedals, but he's eventually able to pass, despite taking the longest time thus far. Adam quickly passes with no difficulty. Breanna is the only driver to fail the challenge, as her clumsy pedal control causes her to quickly exceed the allotted ten minutes, and despite her being allowed extra time, she never comes close to balancing the teeter-totter.
Parallel Parking: After each of the drivers is given a lesson in parallel parking by Tim Danter, they are given the task of parking a 1971 Chevrolet Caprice, which has been outfitted with a reversing camera, between two other cars, and not more than 30cm away from the edge of the road. Each driver will have ten attempts. Breanna quickly fails her first nine attempts by understeering when backing into the space, but after Andrew gets into the car and advises her during her final run, she succeeds. Melanie has the same issue during her run, causing Andrew to also jump in for her final run, and like Breanna, she passes on her last attempt. Ashley only takes two attempts to succeed. Adam's run is much like Breanna's and Melanie's runs, understeering and backing in too far in his first nine attempts, but passing on his tenth go after Andrew reminds him of the lesson. Much to Andrew's disbelief, Travis makes the same mistakes all the previous drivers (barring only Ashley) during his run, and also takes until his final run to pass. Despite being arguably the worst performer in the challenge, as none of his first nine attempts go even remotely well, Travis is also able to succeed on his final run.
Camaro Challenge: Swerve and Avoid: For what is considered to be perhaps the show's most important lesson, the drivers have to approach a wall of foam blocks at 70 km/h, watch for a model black cat that will emerge from one side of the wall, and then swerve the car into the lane on the other side of the wall, without hitting the brakes.
Adam is up first, and fails by initially steering towards the cat, then trying to swere away too late, causing him to hit the dividing wall. Travis drives too fast in his run, doesn't see the cat at all and leaves it too late to steer, sending him through the wall. Breanna narrowly fails by leaving it too late to correct her steering after swerving, causing her to hit the lane markers. Shayne passes with no trouble, though is actually a little apprehensive about this, thinking that the experts will now graduate him, even though he wants to stay in rehab for longer.
Melanie has the worst run thus far, proving extremely nervous throughout the challenge and then swerving straight into the cat without attempting to correct her course. Ashley is the final driver to take the challenge, and for her run fog suddenly descends on the course, which Andrew notes is one of the conditions in which this skill is most vital; her run goes poorly, however, and her understeering causes her to take off the edge of the dividing wall, then run through several lane markers, which results in the Camaro's bumper breaking away.
While the experts consider Shayne to be the episode's best performer overall, for being the only driver who passed all three challenges, he tells them that he doesn't want to graduate just yet, feeling that he has more to learn. As it turns out, nobody wants to graduate.
The experts shortlist Adam (for finishing the Teeter-Totter in the fastest time), Breanna (for performing relatively well on both Parallel Parking and the Swerve and Avoid) and Shayne (for passing all three challenges and the clear improvement in his outlook). After a lengthy discussion, the experts agree that since Breanna's only real problem is her nervousness on the highway, whereas both Adam and Shayne have deeper underlying issues, they'll offer Breanna a highway drive with Tim, and if she can successfully complete it, she'll be allowed to graduate; otherwise, no-one will be graduated this episode. The highway drive subsequently goes with no issues, and on her return, Breanna is given back her licence and becomes the latest graduate.
