* StopHelpingMe: {{In-universe}}. Sometimes, a bad driver's biggest problem is the ''nominator'', who must learn this lesson. In Season 8, Flora's husband and Nominator Frank constantly insisted on "helping", which ultimately led Flora being named co-winner of that season along with Kevin.

* BackseatDriver: [[DeconstructedTrope Sometimes, this show looks more like]] ''[[DeconstructedTrope Canada's Worst]]'' '''[[DeconstructedTrope PASSENGER]]'''. This trope goes to its LogicalExtreme when said backseat driver grabs for the controls of the car (usually the wheel). [[ThereShouldBeALaw Yes, there IS a law against that]]--specifically, a law that states that when a passenger grabs the wheel, the passenger assumes full responsibility for whatever they make the vehicle do [[note]]There ''are'' perfectly legitimate reasons for a passenger to grab the steering wheel, such as the driver being incapacitated, but that hasn't come up on the show yet.[[/note]]. When the show hires a ''relationship therapist'', this is clearly a serious problem. In these cases, it's the ''nominator'' who needs to learn a lesson [[StopHelpingMe (specifically, to put a cork in it)]], as the nominee's driving skills invariably improve (or at least don't get any worse) without the nominator's "instructions".

* AccidentalAimingSkills: Normally, this is used for accuracy with ranged weapons, but how ''else'' would you describe Dale's erratically-steered but perfect run on "The Eye Of The Needle" in ''Ever''?

** Diane gets to spout one off right off the bat for Season 8 (censored, of course). She's arguably the biggest potty-mouth of the Season 8 contestants. Azim from that same season is not too far behind her. Of course, they weren't the only ones to ever do so...

** Tatiana from Season 1 was scared of going fast, and in her drive to the rehab center, appeared to be scared of performing ''left turns''. She managed to mostly conquer this fear during rehab, becoming the second graduate.

*** Second Subverted Example: George would be punched by his nominator Patrik whenever he screwed up a challenge. Even Andrew did this, but not before invoking a DoNotTryThisAtHome at the audience. George graduated in the 4th episode.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: After Shmuel's speeding resulted in him completely obliterating the course's central wall during his Swerve and Avoid run in Season 11, the following exchange took place:
-->'''Andrew:''' What's the one thing I want you to take away from this?
-->'''Shmuel:''' To focus on--
-->'''Andrew:''' DON'T! SPEED! ''(beat)'' DON'T. SPEED.



** The experts pretty much said this to Chanie in Season 10, after she admitted that she hadn't been able to get a supply of vital medication in time for her appearance on the show, and decided not to bother mentioning this little fact to anyone until ''after the final drive''.
