Driving School FAQ

General tips:
1. Turn down your detail level and lower your resolution if possible, it really helps at some objectives to reach it within the time limit.
2. Practice makes perfect, I didn't get all golds in a row either. If you're getting frustrated, do something else and try again later.
3. Change the camera mode to your liking, you don't necessarily have to use the modes as shown in the video.

IMPORTANT NOTE! Where asked I did all objectives Counterclockwise!

My Controls
I recommend you copy these, as I will refer to them in the rest of the FAQ.

Accelerate - UP
Brake / Reverse - DOWN
Steer Left - LEFT
Steer Right - RIGHT
Lean Forward / Move Camera UP - W
Lean Backwards / Move Camera DOWN - S
Handbrake - SPACEBAR
Look Left - Q
Look Right - E
Look Behind - Q&E

Driving School

The 360
Press and Hold UP, DOWN and RIGHT for about 6.5-7 seconds, that's pretty much the perfect circle. Practice it a bit and you'll get it right.

The 180
Press and Hold UP 'til you reach the point where you need to turn. Release UP and hold down SPACE and RIGHT to do the 180 degree turn. Quickly press and hold UP again and speed towards the ending point. You need to stop the car exactly in the middle of the cones.

Whip And Terminate
Watch the movie closely and try to learn the point where I brake and speed around the corner. I recommend using the regular brake (DOWN) when cornering, using the handbrake might slow you down too much.

Pop And Control
Press and hold UP until you cross the spikestrip. DO NOT press UP when you cross the spikestrip, your car will spin out of control and hit the cones. You must release UP for a short time, when you crossed the spikestrip you can resume accelerating, but don't do it too fast. The back of the police car might slip when you brake too sudden. Smoothly guide the police car to the end of the cones and you have your gold medal.

Burn And Lap
The key to Burn and Lap is to be good with the handbrake. I strongly recommend lowering Detail and Resolution for better performance. While I was recording I noticed a clear lag, about half a second. How to corner:
1. Watch the movie. Observe at what point I handbrake around the corner
2. Repeat step 1
3. Repeat step 2
The actual cornering isn't hard, all you do is release UP while doing it and hold down SPACEBAR and LEFT to make an 180 degree turn. The key to this one is to learn WHEN to corner. Again, practice makes perfect. That's all there is to say about this one.

Cone Coil
Watch the movie, use the handbrake technique to corner along the cones halfway and end exactly in the middle of the cones at the end for gold.

The '90'
This one is a bitch, it's not that hard, but it's based on luck. What you do is speed a bit towards either the right or the left car and use the handbrake and the regular brake to end up in between them. The first time I ever did this, it took me 45 minutes to get this a gold, which is about 300 tries. Luckily I'm patient. You should be too if you want gold here.

Wheelie Weave
This objective is rather random in terms of the damage percentage you get. What I've found is that you shouldn't scratch the car in the first few seconds, otherwise you'll get a damage penalty. This is still rather random. There have been tons of times that I was 100% sure I didn't damage the car and had both a 100% position and heading score, but was still penalized with 1 or 2% damage. Steer to the right when you think you're going to roll over. You can also try to tap UP a bit for more stabilty. The randomness of this test is quite frustrating and because of that, there are no sure-fire tips I can give you. Good Luck.

Spin And Go
The taxi is great for spinning, so this shouldn't be much of a problem. Watch the movie to see the point where I spin. Be sure to spin far enough or you'll end up hitting the cones. I repeat: practice makes perfect.

P.I.T. Maneuver
Watch the movie, no further explanation needed.

Alley Oop
Hit the ramp as seen in the movie. As soon as you're in mid-air, let go of UP and hold down LEFT or RIGHT -depending on where you hit the ramp- to spin around quick enough. After a few tries this should be a piece of cake.

City Slicking
This test is also frustrating because of the randomness. Traffic can be a real pain in the ass in this one. On top of that you get a car with bad grip. You need to be a pretty good driver to not let the Super GT slip. You also need to be lucky. Traffic is a very decisive factor for getting gold. If you hit something once, you have to start over (if you're going for gold, that is). Drive in the middle of the tram tracks, on pavement and sides of the road to avoid traffic as much as possible. Be sure to press W often too, as it makes the camera go up enabling you to look ahead and anticipate.

That's it, good luck with getting golds!

On Wheelie Weave, it was cool that you just suddenly stopped. Did you just hit the brakes?

Nice, however for some reason the school I had trouble with was flight school. Even then I only had trouble on ps2 version and not PC version.

Tip: using both breaks ensures perfect facing almost every time.

I've done one for the Flying school already. smile.gif

That's my trademark tounge.gif

Bike school & Boat School movies are coming soon.

And Mr. Coffee, I use both brakes, I'll edit my FAQ to add that. Thanks for reminding me, though.

I just got 100% on the burn and lap, finally. I couldn't get below 36.17s(=99%) suicidal.gif

Changing the video settings to 'low detail' like Cygnus suggested I managed to get 36.12(=100%) in three tries.

So I guess it does make a difference. Thanks for that, now I have all gold on all schools! colgate.gif

Great vid. Although I prefer this method of doing city slicking (method 1). http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=205823
I actually managed to get gold after a few tries going his way.

After that, I went back and did every driving test to gold, except for the friggin alley oop. I just couldn't get that one.

..it's strange to see the diversity of what is considered 'difficult' in driving school.. I for instance can NOT get 'the 90', I'v done it at least a thousand times already, but only managed bronze (once!! nervous.gif )..as for 'city slicking', got that in one go and did it a few times more to see if I was only lucky, but I pass it every time...
