Headscratchers / Canada's Worst Driver

  • How these people get their licenses is something that puzzles even the host and experts!
    • They usually say how they got them, such as knowing the examiner or flirting with him. Most are borderline illegal.
    • In Aaron's case (Season Seven), the headscratcher was "why was his license still valid after he was in a coma for two months?"
      • Because driver's licenses aren't revoked just because the possessor is in a coma and two months is not enough for it to expire.
    • Father Giles is easier to understand—his license was issued during a different time in a different driving culture.
    • From Season 8, Kevin has a glass eye! That's right. He is literally half-blind. How does someone with no depth perception or right-side peripheral vision get a driver's licence?
      • Depends on whether it was issued before or after he lost the eye.
      • Turns out, depth perception doesn't have much effect on driving. Or a lot of things.
      • Many people with glass eyes or who are blind in one eye can drive perfectly fine. Having a glass eye was something he used as an excuse for bad driving, but he'd be just as bad a driver with two eyes, because he simply didn't look where he was going—ever.
      • Perhaps the question should be expressed as "How does a person with one eye pass the vision test required to get a license?"
      • Possibly answered with Jason in Season 10 — he passed his initial eye test when he first got a license, so he doesn't have to take another eye exam until he turns 80.
    • Heck, Sholom from Season 11 flat out admitted that if he got his license, there was definitely something amiss.
    • One thing that's noted is that certain things you would expect to be covered as essential driving knowledge on driving tests in fact isn't covered.

  • How in the hell did they not expel Dale for chasing Andrew? Not only is that reckless and dangerous, I'm pretty sure it's a felony. Like I get Scott was already expelled but really? The bitch chased him!
    • If she hadn't apologized, I think she would have been booted. Scott never apologized.
    • Canada uses indictable offenses, not felonies. But, yes, intentionally trying to run someone over with a car is assault with a weapon, an indictable offense under the Criminal Code of Canada. Presumably, had she not apologised, they would have pursued criminal charges.

  • How the freaking hell did Chanie nearly flip the car?
    • The way that she was driving and the fact that she lost control while driving distracted caused her to get the styrofoam block under her wheels (from what I can see). The car was bouncing pretty solidly by that point so it wouldn't surprise me.

  • Why did Colin take Police Foundation courses at his college, if he looks down on Police?
    • My guess would be that he had the "old boys club" mentality that some cops (and wannabe cops) have and he figured that by becoming a cop, he'd be able to do what he pleased and not get in trouble for it. Boy howdy, reality needs to ensue.
