The Gimbal -- The first challenge has the contestants all together in the same Plymouth Reliant "K-car" station wagon as they attempt to balance on top of a gimbal. Lance narrowly avoids running out of time, balancing out 17 seconds before the 30-minute time limit. He also helps Dale finish in 8:30. Brad finishes in 5:41 in uncharacteristic silence.
Camaro Challenge: The Mega-Challenge -- The Camaro forms the second leg of the annual final exam challenge. In the Mustang leg, contestants must take a sharp turn at a corner before proceeding to a precision forward and reverse course. They then have 5 minutes to perform one drifting donut before switching to the Camaro, where they must perform an Eye of the Needle, a slalom, and a handbrake turn, before balancing on the teeter-totter. Brad takes the corner too late, but manages to make the donut. However, Donna's sudden outburst after accompanying him in silence through the first leg makes him suddenly stop after crashing through the last two arches in the Eye of the Needle, making him unable to make speed for the handbrake turn. He punches the steering wheel in frustration, hurting his fist. Neither Lance nor Dale pass any portion of the Mustang leg, but Dale makes a slightly better run in the Camaro, balancing on the teeter-totter on the first try; Lance had gotten too fast on the Eye of the Needle and slalom portions, and only managed a 3/4 turn in the handbrake turn.
The Final Road Test -- Originally meant to be done in the Camaro, the road test is done in a Porsche Boxster in the streets of Niagara Falls, Ontario, modified with a limiter to prevent sudden bursts of acceleration. Lance gets into an anxiety attack shortly after the first turn, and the challenge is called off, due to Andrew believing Lance needs medical assistance. For Brad's run, Donna is beside him in the passenger seat, while Andrew is in a chase car. Despite going off course, Donna and Brad manage to maintain composure, and their run finishes with a minimal number of incidents. For Dale, she makes a moving violation less than five minutes in, and the moving violations keep on racking up: by the end of her run, she makes 19 moving violations, which would cost $2,532 in fines, had a police officer seen them all.
In deliberation, Dale admits that she has learned a lot, but her results say otherwise. The experts congratulate Brad and Donna for their improvements in relationship that has led to better driving, but question whether Lance's anxiety, which he claims to be unrelated to his driving, could be affecting him. In the end, after 20 minutes of deliberation, the experts arrive at a unanimous decision: Brad is the final graduate, Dale should not drive until she is retested, and Lance is Canada's Worst Driver.
