*** Baba G (Season 13 Breanna's nominator) for being a BadassGrandma, and her caring attitude to her granddaughter.
* JerkassWoobie: Angelina. ''Dear God'', Angelina. She may be ignorant at times, and show a lack of improvement but her depression, anxiety and overall mental health problems are almost enough to make her a straight example of TheWoobie. Her boot episode in ''Ever'' shows just how damaged the poor woman is.

* Krystal in Season 12 is quite possibly the most hated nominator on the show that it required a folder for organisation.

** Travis from Season 13 was not liked in the beginning due to his lack of skills and his initial NeverMyFault attitude. But he did improve a lot in terms of skills and dropped his initial attitude which earned his graduation by Episode 6.



** Melanie from Season 13. While she wasn't too bad in the first half of the season, her poor attitude soon rubbed people the wrong way when it came to learning the lessons especially since she's in rehab for her kids as two of them have special needs.
** In terms of most hated nominators; we have Wil (Melissa's nominator) from Season 5 based on his constant yelling that goes into DomesticAbuse territory, and Yolanda (Michael's nominator) from ''Ever'' as she refused to go into the vehicle with him, and even reprimands him if he passes a challenge. Nobody missed Yolanda when her husband (and Michael's original nominator from Season 2) took her place in the second half.

Nobody missed Yolanda when her husband (and Michael's original nominator from Season 2) took her place in the second half.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The show's premise is to try and make bad drivers better, but sometimes there are drivers that show they are unable to drive at all whether due to medical reasons, mental/emotional problems, or just being unable to drive at all. By the twelve seasons so far, at least 4 nominees have given up driving (two gave up willingly, one was willing to in the beginning only to be forced when he tried to weasel out of the deal, and one was forced to give up driving due to failing a medical driving review).

** With some of the nominees on the show, they prove that they just refuse how to learn how to take in the lessons from the experts (Season 2 Colin and Season 12 Krystal are prime examples).

** Adam from Season 13. He is the best driver of the final 3, and was short-listed four times in a row (which also ties him with S4 Ashely and S9 Michael for the record), but his low confidence is the major problem, and his refusal to graduate kept him in rehab in the fifth episode.[[note]](though given that it seems an unwritten rule that the fifth episode of a season always ends with no graduation, chances are if he ''had'' wanted to graduate it would have been denied on the grounds that he did poorly in the Water Tank Challenge)[[/note]]
*** Shayne from the same season was this as well. He was the other strongest driver so far, and probably would have graduated in Episode 6 had he not admit to the panel that he had some road rage problems during the highway lessons with Tim. He did eventually graduate in the next episode.

*** Donna's medical expulsion is this. Before the Water Tank Challenge, she was easily the worst driver of the eight, and everyone predicted she would be the recipient of the title. However, she suffered an angina attack during the water tank challenge (a condition she failed to mention to the crew beforehand), which caused the show to remove her from the show out of fear of any worse medical problems.
*** Teagan, at least to the contestant perspective. While Ashley was the better technical driver of the final four and was up on the shortlist for the fourth time, Teagan was the best out of them in 2 of the three challenges and improved a lot more of his own problems than Ashely. The three females (Ashley, Amy, and Emily) were not happy about the decision (though Andrew did admit that the decision, regardless of the outcome, would not have produced a good reaction).

*** Jamie from the same season can be this as well. Compared to her, Brad was the better technical driver, but she showed more confidence in the wheel, while Brad still hadn't fully gotten his wife to cooperate with him yet.

** Travis from Season 13. He improved a lot over the course of his run, but he was up against Shayne and Aaron who were shortlisted more than once. Travis got to graduate however since Shayne admitted that he had some road rage problems during a lesson with Tim, and Aaron didn't have a good run this episode.

** Season 10 had a somewhat unusual example of this trope. While the season was actually airing, Siham was by far and away the most popular contestant with the fans, who viewed her as the DistaffCounterpart of Aaron, and it helped that she generally did well in the challenges. That all changed the day after the finale aired, when she went ballistic on social media, aiming some incredibly nasty insults at the people involved with making the show, and even some implied legal threats.[[note]](While she was vague about what exactly upset her, the general jist of it seemed to be that she was ''very'' pissed off that Jason was given the final graduation instead of her, and that Cam had tried to name her the worst driver. Many of the show's fans actually ''agreed'' that Siham should have been the final graduate, but the way she handled the issue unsurprisingly turned people off of her)[[/note]] Instead, Santana is now generally regarded as the season's Ensemble Darkhorse; while an early graduate, she was also perhaps the best performer aside from George, and definitely had the best attitude toward learning.

** Jordan from Season 11 was hated for his self-centered attitude, and lack of interest in the rehab center early on. However, he managed to fix his main problems (eye sight, driving distracted), and developed a better attitude for learning, earning his graduation by Episode 6.
