I hope one day we can give control to another player on our friend list to do some of these missions lol. I tried...no way in the world even after almost a year can I get all gold in licenses especially the Nurburgring and the very last stage with those rain puddles.

I recently finished all licenses, golding all. The fear of God was put into me from reading about S10. TBH, I didn't find it all that hard. Sure, getting the first lap in without crashing off WAS hard, but once I'd learned where to be ultra cautious, well, no real issues.

IA10 (Merc at Nurburbring?) was hardest of all license tests, but I found some of the track circuit experiences to be much harder. I still haven't finished them all, but Streets of Willow traumatised me. I still wake up in cold sweats.

S10 is killing me. I'm within 1.5 seconds. I use TC1 and the driving line, and the demo ghost to follow, because on Ps4 it's not easy to see where the dry is sometimes. Two places I always lose time are the beginning and the end, turn 1 right at the start and the final chicane. What gears are you guys taking these in, and any other advice would help.
I used TC2, and full-on steering counter-assist. Just for this one. I'm no Senna, just a 62 year-old fart, but it helped me into the 24s. I'm not too proud to say my reflexes needed all the help they could get.

" ...If you haven't yet, work up to and complete menu book 39, then grind the 1 hour Spa race."
I second that. Not having any ambition for the Super License tests, I was grinding the 1 hour races at Spa. I did LOTS of laps there in those races, earning many millions of credits, all the while learing the track back to front.

My car of choice was the Mazda 787, but honestly, any car Gr2 or Gr1 will allow you to do it easily. The S10 will seem relatively simple after a while.

Ive only managed to get bronze on S10, but the nurburgring merc after taking a break from license tests for a few months, i nailed it in my 3rd try and even got 1.5 sec ahead of the required gold!

I only got S10 and S7 i think, the formula 1 which is so insanely wild, most of the corners you are taking a leap of faith at full speed.

Re the S7 at Laguna: I'm 62, and my reflexes aren't as sharp as they once were. I was TEN seconds off gold in my first attempts. In the end, as you say, I had to trust the downforce.

Ha!!! Finally beat Moby Dick Mission #7 - The Pass. Maybe it was my grinding in Sport mode on the time trials or using cars with a bit less traction, but for some reason today that GT-R felt like it had a ton of grip. I was able to squeeze past the NSX and Porsche on the first turn of the chicane and kept traction over the next couple turns to pass the Aston going in to the last turn. Ran a 1:13 flat.

Is the full lap really that hard? I'm trying to earn some credits for the next update and want that five million.

I didn't have too much of an issue with the individual sectors but saved the final lap for later (maybe today). It seems daunting, that's for sure.

I finally did it, final gold needed for the trophy! Actually once I slowly figured out where I cna and where I cant drive, I started to enjoy this last test. I actually improved my time 3 times because I thought it was a good challenge and I knew I could do it better. What a rush, here is the video:



@BigSarj to be honest when I first tried it i thought this was devil worship ****, youtubers talking about this test like the hardest ever in a GT. I did struggle at first to keep the car on track but especially if you have demo ghost turned on you can kind of tell if you are driving well or not.

Interesting. I got gold in all licenses, but am not going to bother with drifting.
I watched Basic Ollie practically tear his hair out.

Not worth the frustration.

Thanks but I will not let this dumb game win and make me resort to glitches - I’ll beat the stupid thing properly, some day.

After weeks of frustration I resorted to using the controller, which I had to learn to use because I've never used one before ... Took a few hours (only) to learn the controller and gold the Expert drifting
