Canada's Worst Driver

Show Summary

Every year, eight of the worst drivers in Canada are nominated by friends and family to be sent to the Driver Rehabilitation Center. Once there, they are given proper training by qualified instructors and are taken through various tests. The tests include braking, nighttime driving, country driving, and cornering, among other things. At the end of each episode, somebody is graduated and returns home. The last person remaining is dubbed Canada's Worst Driver.

  • Clever show

    10
    This show is insightful, entertaining and educational for everyone. Could CWD please check out who on the show is left-handed? I am and I have found I had many more issues driving than most people. Left-handed people have to think when someone tells them to turn right, or left. Left-handed people sometimes have directional issues - I had to learn what north and south were, and when people gave me directions backing up (or directions related to degrees) it was never clear to me, until I learned how to decipher it in my own mind.moreless

    To really appreciate Andrew Younghusband, watch one episode of "America's Worst ." It's like the difference between a dog and a stuffed dog. Not to mention AY's ability to keep ridicule and dismay out of his voice when he gives the graduates their licenses back (why? why? why?). And not to mention his genuine enormous bravery in getting into the cars with these people and going on the road.



    What a tremendous public service this show provides for insurance agents, police officers, lawyers, and the hapless, hitherto clueless, dented-up neighbors of these blind and intellectually-challenged sociopaths! One might suggest that in future the Canadian police consider turning their attention from tourists to residents.



    I am over across the border and what I see is a little fuzzy, but I'd watch this show if it was in black and white at 3 am. I can hardly wait for an All-Star season.moreless

    1rst off. Are you serious?

    If you ( producers ) are not rigging this, then I would like to say that whomever has signed the licenses of these people.Must be FIRED. Suspended with No Pay.Whipped and chained.... SOMETHING !

    I would like the show(producers) to be contacting the so called instructors, licensees whom have granted and SIGNED the drivers licenses of the participants.And let's see them go through your course.

    2ndly.. CONGRATULATIONS CANADA well done, bravo !

  • One particular line from your show may just have saved lives last night. My name is Kelly Rawn and I am a fan of the show from Stayner, Ont...I will explain my story below.moreless

    Last night my four kids and I where driving down the famously bad Airport Rd between Stayner & Creemore doing 65-70km in an "80km" I fishtailed, so I tapped the brake and next thing I knew we where into oncoming traffic with a car coming right at me. All of a sudden the show hosts voice was in my head saying a specific line from the show. What line you ask well "Look where you want to go/end up" I was looking right at the car when I thought this, so I focused on the ditch and turned my wheel toward it and hoped for the best. I yelled at the kids we'll be ok but I need you to hold on. We ended up exactly where I hoped upside down unharmed except for a few scratches and bruises, the 2005 Excursion is a total write off and played a great role in saving our lives. We are def'ly putting the money out to find another Excursion as unfortunately they no longer build them. We just made the last payment last month lol

    Road conditions where the cause. Everyone at the scene said that I did all the right things.I am positive that, the advice from your show is just one of the things that saved our lives. Just wanted to say that even among the humor of your show there really is some very good advice as well and for that We all Thank you. Many Thanks Again,

    A review by Johnny Warrant: November 2009



    Thanks to everyone at Canada's Worst driver. I started watching the show for the entertainment value. Soon I noticed that my 2 teenage daughters were actually learning some very useful driving information. As I continued to watch episode after episode I also picked up some very useful tricks. Like the S turn, I had been going about 60% into an S turn and was having some difficulty. Now that I understand the geometry of the S turn and I start to correct after I reach the 1/2 way point, my driving has improved. Thanks for creating an educational and entertaining series that we can all enjoy. I bet this is one of the few programs on TV that actually helps to save lives.



    Keep it up Johnny Warrentmoreless
