Distracted Driving: Prior to the challenge, a montage of contestants from past seasons attempting this challenge are shown, with many promising afterwards never to drive distracted again and since nearly all the drivers in rehab are guilty of being distracted at the wheel on a regular basis (every driver except Karlene uses their cellphone while driving; Karlene is the only one who consistently refuses to be distracted at the wheel-- having been hit while walking in 2005-- and, as such, is exempted from this challenge), the remaining drivers are each asked to drive a simple course at 30 km/h in a BMW while undertaking the task that causes them to be distracted. Brittany causes a lot of damage to the course while eating a hamburger patty, opening a bottle of Gatorade and grabbing a cigarette. As if that's not enough, while waiting for a text from Andrew, Brittany receives a phone call, further missing the point of this challenge. Since attempting this challenge is impossible for Brandon due to his broken arm, Sarah is forced to attempt this challenge and causes even more damage just by combing her hair and attempting to respond to a text from Andrew, but while Sarah gets the point of this challenge, that texting while driving is not worth risking her life, Brandon continues to miss the point. Darris not only causes even more damage while trying to smoke a cigarette and open a bottle of Gatorade, but he also ends up missing the point, laughing throughout the challenge. Alexis causes even more damage while trying to change her clothes and shoes, but afterwards promises her entire hometown that she will change her ways. Descy also causes even more damage while smoking, but like Alexis before her, also promises to change her ways, breaking down in tears.
Highway Drive/Mustang Challenge: Swerve and Avoid: Tim will be taking the drivers through a drive on the Chedoke Expressway before they swerve and avoid, in an attempt to demonstrate that the experience needn't be stressful. 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 triceratops in high heels 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. Brandon is up first and, despite his initial thought that he would fail due to driving with a broken arm, passes with no trouble. Karlene, who had a full-blown panic attack after both the Eye of the Needle and the Shoulder Check Challenge, is instructed not to stop; despite failing by hitting the final lane marker, she didn't break down in tears. Descy is next and for her run, rain suddenly descends on the course; despite this, she also passes with no trouble, even though she drove slightly too fast. Brittany has the worst run thus far, shutting her eyes while driving straight through the right side of the wall and smashing several lane markers.
Alexis proves even worse than Brittany (if that's even possible), speeding past 90 km/h and smashing the second line of lane markers. Darris is the final driver to take the challenge and passes with no trouble.
Best Performer: Brandon and Darris were the only two people who passed this challenge, with Darris doing slightly better.
Worst Performer: Alexis was the worst, speeding past 90 km/h and smashing the second line of lane markers.
While the experts consider Darris to be the season's best performer overall, for being the only driver who passed every single challenge, Cam suggests that, since Darris' only problem is his road rage on public roads, they'll offer Darris another public drive and if he can successfully complete it, he'll be allowed to graduate; otherwise, for the third episode in a row, no one will graduate. Before the drive begins, Darris apologizes to Tim for his previous comment about disliking him and for the lack of driver commentary in the earlier public drive. The drive in question subsequently goes with no issues and, even though Darris is the only person who expresses any wish to graduate and vows never to be distracted at the wheel again, the experts are split on how Darris should leave rehab; Cam and Shyamala are in favour of simply releasing Darris for showing no desire to change his personality, while Philippe feels that they should focus on the others, which Andrew agrees with, although Andrew disagrees with Cam that they're wasting their time with Darris, leaving Tim to cast the deciding vote. At the graduation ceremony, Andrew announces that Darris, who only narrowly missed graduating in the first episode on the grounds that Ryan drove flawlessly on the Assessment Challenge, is only the season's second graduate.
