* HardWorkHardlyWorks:
** Completely averted in the show - hard work is what gets you to graduate. The best example was Shirley Sampson, who went on a mission to become a better driver after making a fool of herself in Season 7. In ''Ever'', her study of road signs got her 8 out of 10, she knew enough to watch her wheels on the "Know Where Your Wheels Are" challenge, and she only needed a quick refresher on the S-Turn challenge, which she performed without knocking anything over. She was the second graduate. Diane in Season 8 is praised for being the model student, refusing to leave rehab until she was confident enough to ace her final road test in the last episode. Chris from Season 1 passed just based on the Assessment Run in ''Ever''.

** In season 12, Daniella did very poorly while learning to back up a trailer, so she Googled videos of trailer reversal so she would avoid making a fool of herself during the challenge--which was parking a trailer in a garage. She then proceeded to avoid making a fool of herself as she parked the trailer on her first try.

* ShowSomeLeg: When Andrew asked one contestant how she passed her driving test (she was, amongst other things, unable to parallel park), her answer? "Flirt!" He really hoped her instructor was watching the show.

** Kevin in ''Ever'' not only snapped at Andrew after Andrew called a halt to the road test due to several near-collisions, but refused to take the trophy and sulkily refused to burn his license (which he promised to do if he was declared Canada's Worst Driver Ever or if told by the panel to stop driving).

Though, in fairness, after some pressure and prompting, he did burn it.

* SubvertedRhymeEveryOccasion: The final episode of ''Canada's Worst Driver Ever'' has a sort of twisted version of this. Host Andrew does complete a rhyme, but instead of the rhyme being the end of it, he just sort of meanders off. This happens after Michael recites the oath of the Blue Lantern (see SurvivalMantra below).
-->'''Andrew''': (''speaking in hushed voice with gravity'') Here at the rehab center, in the dark of night, I think we'll finish this challenge, but not without a fight. They're trying their hardest... come with me. But it will freak you out. I don't know... (''normal voice'') if he's driving with a gout or if he's got a bad elbow or if he can't see properly, but... jeez he drives like a monkey.

* SurvivalMantra: In ''Canada's Worst Driver Ever'', Kevin recites the oath of the [[Characters/GLBlueLanternCorps Blue Lantern]]: "''In fear filled days, in raging nights, with strong hearts full, our souls ignite. When all seems lost in the war of light, look to the stars, for hope burns bright. All will be well.''" Unfortunately, it never seems to help.
-->'''Andrew''': All will be well... if Michael maintains 70K an hour and keeps his hands on the wheel. (''Michael crashes into a foam person and fails the challenge for the final time.'') Michael may be Canada's Worst Driver ''Ever''.

* TalkingInYourSleep: The sixth episode of ''Ever'' opens with Andrew lying in bed supposedly having a nightmare and muttering in his sleep one of the [[CatchPhrase catchphrases]] of the show "Look where you wanna go," before waking up and saying he had a nightmare about all of the worst drivers they ever had coming back to the rehabilitation center.

* CensorBox ([[ParodiedTrope Parodied]]): a stop sign appears over the contestants' mouth whenever they swear (along with accompanying bleep). Punk rocker Jakob from Season 5 got an anarchy symbol instead. The censor box also appears (repeatedly) if any swear words are displayed on a visible object (i.e. Tina's "If you don't like my driving" sign)
