1. Stealing locked cars: Some cars have locked doors so you cannot steal them (such as cop cars and your first girlfriend's Hustler). However, getting them into a garage will unlock the doors. You can either push a car into the garage or get a Tow Truck or a Tractor to tow them.
2. Stealing locked cars (2): To get in a locked vehicle with someone inside (for example, a Combine Harvester), driving shoot the person in the head and the door will fling open, allowing you drive it away.
3. Stealing locked cars (3): Find a Tow Truck (for example, at the dump in Mount Chillad) and drive to where the locked car is located. Hook the locked car onto the Tow Truck and tow it into your garage. Let the garage close. When you open the garage again, the locked car should be unlocked. This is easier then pushing it into your garage.
4. Stealing locked cars (4): If you try to open a car and it is locked, go far from it, then return. The color of the car will be different and the doors will be unlocked.
5. Stealing locked cars (5): If someone has locked their car door, and you shoot them out, be careful not to get out before you reach your garage. Otherwise, the door will stay locked.
6. Finding your car after getting busted: If you been arrested, go down to the police parking lot. Walk around without a weapon. Eventually, you will find your car.
7. Faster motorcycle: On any type of motorcycle, slightly move the Left Analog-stick Forward to where CJ's head is directly level with the handlebars. This will make your motorcycle move about 15 to 20 mph faster than its usual top speed.
8. Longer stoppie time bonus: Take a BMX and gain some speed. Immediately hold Square followed by Left Analog-stick Forward. Keep them held. If done correctly, the bicycle will be balanced on front wheel. You can also release Square and Left Analog-stick and the bicycle will remain in that position. You can use this trick to take the stoppie bonus for the maximum time as desired. Note that distance covered in this trick will be less.
9. Quick nitrous refill: Leave your car then immediately re-enter it. Your nitrous will be back at full.
10. License plates: Some people that have their own cars have special things on their license plates: Ryder: Sherm. Sweet: Grove4L (Grove for life).
11. Fly plane without pilot license: Go to either Las Vatos or Los Santos airport. Go to the place that you would enter if you had a pilot license. If you try to get in the gate, it will say you cannot unless you have the license. Next to the gate is a small building. You will need a small car or any type of bike (BMX, bike, motorcycles, etc.). Stand on top of it and jump on top of the building. Jump off and you should see a fence (at Los Santos Airport). Climb the fence and you will see a Dodo plane. Also, if you follow the runway east, you will see a small jet that is unlocked. At Las Vatos, follow the same procedure. After you jump off of the building, just walk around and look for a plane. Note: All but one of the aircraft at San Fereno's airport are locked.
12. Fly plane without pilot license(2): After using the "Fly plane without pilot license" trick at the Los Santos airport, go forward you should see a Dodo airplane. Get in and take a right when inside the plane. Go straight, then take a right at the runway. Go down it until you see a jet on the right. It is not on the runway. You can get out of the Dodo and get in the jet. You can now fly the jet wherever desired. However, be careful -- if you go out of your territory you will get four stars and jets will shoot missiles at you. Try to dodge them if possible.
13. Keep aircraft from races: Enter the races at the Las Venturas Airport. Select the race with the airplane you desire, then ignore the race and instead take it back to your airstrip and park it in your own big hangar. You will fail the mission, but can re-do it. Once you get back to your airstrip and look in your hanger, your airplane will be there. Save the game to keep it.
14. Amphibious car: Enable the "Flying car" and "Maximum lung capacity" codes. Get a car and go in water. Press R1 to turn the vehicle.
