Cheat for the Max Driving Skills "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" for PS2

by Seth Amery ; Updated September 22, 2017

Once C.J. has the money, weapons and physique he wants, the next thing "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" has to offer is driving skill. Although you can drive around and improve by practice, there's no faster way to get the job done on the PlayStation 2 than with the maximum skills cheat code. People also refer to this cheat code as the maximum driving skills code, but this is a bit of a misnomer because it affects more than just driving cars.

Boosting Maximum Driving Skills

After loading your game, press the following buttons at any time while the game is unpaused: Square, L2, X, R1, L2, L2, Left, R1, Right, L1, L1, L1. If you did it correctly, you'll hear a chime and see a box in the upper left corner that says "Cheat activated." With this cheat active, you'll be able to make sharp, accurate turns at high speeds and can even press the right analog stick to use hydraulics included as part of the cheat. Cars aren't the only beasts you'll tame, though; the cheat code also makes you a master of biking, boating, motorcycling and flying planes. Entering the cheat code again while it's active disables it.
