Driving, Boat, Pilot and Bike school Guide GTA: San Andreas


San Andreas Driving, Boat, Pilot and Bike School Guide

- by IKHAM

Here is a short guide about the 4 different schools in San Andreas. There is a bike, driving, pilot and boat school. Only the pilot school is necessary for 100%, but they all offer rewards for completing them.

You will find the schools marked on the game menu map as an S. I have also made a small map to point out there locations. They are only available after completing certain missions, which will be covered in this guide.

All the schools operate on a medals basis. Bronze, silver and gold. The better medals you get the better the reward. The table below outlines what percentage you need to get each medal.

Medal Percentage Needed
Bronze 70%-84%
Silver 85%-99%
Gold 100%

This guide goes over the locations, rewards and the first availability of each school. Chaos Energy has written another superb downloadable text guide on how to complete each school.

Driving School ? Boat School
Driving School

Location: San Fierro, in the Doherty area. It's just a few blocks south of the garage CJ buys in the game missions.
Unlocked: After completing the Deconstruction mission, which is one of the garage missions.
Reward: Gives you more driving skill, unlocks the race tournaments and completes the mission 'Back to School'. In addition to this, the medals you get determine what car spawns outside the driving school in the car park. At least all bronze gives you a Super GT. At least silver gives you a Bullet and at least gold gives you the Hotknife.

Pilot School

Location: Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard in the desert.
Unlocked: You must buy the Aircraft Graveyard which will cost you $80,000. It is also a required part of the main story missions.
Reward: It's part of the main story missions so after completion you get $15,000, some respect and also a parachute everytime you jump out of a plane. You also recieve the pilot liscense which lets you get in an airport through the main gates. An airplane will spawn in the hanger to the west depending on which medals you get. Get at least bronzes and a Rustler will spawn. Get at least silvers and the stuntplane appears. All gold and the Hunter is yours.

I completed the driving school!!! And also the wang car missions. It didn't take me one hour to complete the garage missions. :)

Yes! It's possible to change your record! I had to change my record in almost every test to get all gold! (I had completed the second last mission by the time I had all gold. Now I'm taking over territories to do the last mission!)

2 things. Of which, one is strange. First , the not strange and happy moments one. I completed the flight school ALL GOLD. The hunter is is mine now and I did the police mission in it and they became so easy! Second, the strange one. The desert airstripflight school is located so close to the "no fly zone"
