The Driving School in Doherty, San Fierro.

The Driving School is an educational establishment in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas where the player learns advanced maneuvers and tactics of handling a vehicle. It is located in Doherty, San Fierro, two blocks down from the Doherty Garage and across the Doherty Safehouse. It is marked by a red "S". After you have completed the mission Deconstruction, Jethro will call and tell you about the Driving School.

Spending more and more time there will increase the players ability to drive and once the meter is full all cars handling will become better than before. While completing the school in general is quite hard, getting all gold medals is extremely hard for the average player, and most golds are result of a fluke. Challenging points are time limits, and a damage meter.

Passing the school is required to unlock the mission Zeroing In and the rest of the Wang Cars asset missions.

Also, inside the Driving School is where you could first find Michelle Cannes, one of the six possible girlfriends Carl Johnson can date.
