| Um, you know when you have to do the missions: Back To School and Learning To Fly, do you have to do the Driving School and Pilot School missions again? |
Nope. Once you pass them once, you're fine. The special mission-style names on those two schools is just there to confuse you.
Oh cool, thanks. I would also like to know how much percentage you get when you get all the oysters? I'm at 98.40% and all I have to do is End Of The Line mission.
There are 187 different tasks which count towards % completion; there's a link in the first post to Craig Kostelecky's list of these tasks. Each one gives you approximately 0.53%, so you have exactly 3 things left to do. End of the Line will count as 1 of those things (98.93%) and if you still have the oysters, that's another (99.47%) leaving one task left.
This seems an excellent time to debut something I've been toying with; Craig Kostelecky put together a 99.47% checklist to help people pinpoint what's left when they are down to just one thing remaining; it's posted earlier in this thread. Recently I mentioned to him that I wanted to take that list and organize it by the easiest verification methods and he thought it was a good idea so here it is. It should apply to all versions/platforms; feel free to PM me if you have corrections or suggestions.

how each task can be verified in-game. Note, if you play on the PC version,
your best bet is to use the San Andreas Mission Analyzer (SAMA) program
which you can get from http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=220426
However, if you are on a console or for some reason can't use SAMA and you
are looking for that one last thing to do, this list should help you find it.

VERIFY: The Croupier outfit is in the Special section of your wardrobe, and
the 4 Nightvision Goggles pickups are available; the one in Madd Dogg's
Mansion (near the kitchen) is probably the easiest to locate.
[ ] "End of the Line" Mission VERIFY: Riots no longer occuring in Los Santos
Note, for "End of the Line", if you have used the Peds Riot cheat, this may
not be a foolproof verification method. To further verify, make sure you
control at least 35% of the Gang Territory (Gang section of Stats) and walk
around outside on foot. If there is no marker in front of Sweet's house and
you don't get a phone call from him, the mission is probably passed. It is
also generally easy to remember doing given the length & complexity.
Another option: Listen to WCTR. If you get the final news report which talks
about the mission and ends with the phrase "the end and a new beginning"
then you've passed End of the Line.
VI. Items which cannot be easily verified but can be redone
[ ] Learn Moves at Ganton Gym, LS.
[ ] Learn Moves at Cobra Marital Arts Gym, SF.
[ ] Learn Moves at Below the Belt Gym, LV.
[ ] Freight Train - Level 2
[ ] Chiliad Challenge
EDIT, 6 July 2006: reworded safehouse entry and added End of the Line radio bit. Left the gyms as-is because while srg is right that you can narrow it down by watching your fighting moves, they are difficult to describe to someone in a short text file like this, so I think the simplest solution is to just redo all three since they are short and pretty easy.
EDIT, 9 Dec 2007: added secondary verification for "level-based" side jobs.
