From a media release:
The countryâ€™s most dreadful drivers buckle up for a ride on the road to redemption in Season 14 of Discoveryâ€™s longest-running series CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER, airing Mondays at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, beginning Oct. 29. Led by returning host and Discovery mainstay Andrew Younghusband, the hit series features seven drivers â€“ each nominated by a friend or family member â€“ as they attempt to prove they possess the necessary skills to graduate from rehab and escape the unfortunate title of â€œCanadaâ€™s Worst Driver.â€ The all-new season premieres during the networkâ€™s nationwide free preview, available Oct. 4 â€“ Nov. 1 through participating TV service providers across Canada.
Hauled off Canadaâ€™s highways from Victoria to Saint John, N.B., these reckless drivers head to the Driver Rehabilitation Centre in Dunnville, Ont. where they are stripped of their car keys and driverâ€™s license. Each episode features the tried-and-tested challenges viewers have come to love, each designed to push the drivers to their limits and teach them crucial safe driving skills â€“ all with an eye to eliminate driver distraction.
With the introduction of smartphones, online navigation, and self-driving vehicles, driving schools have refreshed their teaching methods, and the Driver Rehabilitation Centre is no exception. In a first for CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER, Season 14 sees Younghusband examine drivingâ€™s technological revolution and its influence on automotive trends and safety, focusing on everything from back-up cameras to cell phone usage behind the wheel.
Joining Younghusband once again this season are the showâ€™s merciless team of driving experts including CP24â€™s Cam Woolley, traffic expert and former OPP sergeant; professional high-performance driving instructor Philippe LÃ©tourneau; expert driving instructor Tim Danter; and registered psychotherapist Shyamala Kiru.
Last season, CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER drove major audiences across Canada to Discovery. Final data from Numeris for the 2017/18 broadcast year confirms that CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER continues to be the most-watched entertainment specialty program during its 10 p.m. ET timeslot among total viewers and the key A25-54 and A18-49 demos. Additionally, the series ranked as a Top 5 series on Discovery among total viewers and A25-54 and A18-49.
