Wipeout Wiki
Driver's Ed

A contestant gets nailed by the airbag.

Driver's Ed is an obstacle, introduced as the second obstacle of the Qualifier in Season 4's Summer Wipeout, alternating with the Dreadmill and the Big Balls.

Contestants had to cross by holding onto the spinning steering wheels while getting hit below by the brakes. In the second and third steering wheel, an airbag pops out, flinging contestants off the obstacle. Broken windshield sprayers are sometimes present to shower contestants with water.

In episodes that feature duos, both contestants attempt the obstacle at the same time, with the second teammate immediately starting once their partner reaches the second steering wheel.

It was removed from the course in Season 5.
