GTA 5 player wants your help getting around Los Santos legally after failing their in-game driving test

"Can someone give me a ride to my bunker?"

A GTA 5 player who failed their in-game driving test is only using public transport to get around Los Santos.

After failing their San Andreas driving test, redditor MotorDesigner reached out to the GTA subreddit for advice on the best way to get around the city without a car - legally, in other words, even though the concept is comically novel in any GTA game, of course.

Admittedly, the in-game driving test doesn't look too troublesome - questions include when it's permissible to run a red light, what the correct driving position is, and how best to drive when "getting serviced orally by a girl while driving" - MotorDesigner failed to meet the San Andreas Department of Motor Vehicles' low, low standards, and therefore cannot drive legally in the city.

After asking "can someone give me a ride to my bunker", the suggestions MotorDesigner received included riding the bus and the jumping on the metro (thanks, TheGamer).

"This test really explains the NPC traffic lol," opined one respondent.

One GTA Online player has become a billionaire in-game, nine years after the game released. The feat took jamcar70 two years, 34 days and four hours of playtime to achieve, as shown on their screenshot to prove their in-game savings.

As for the latest on the GTA 6 leak? The 17-year-old suspect believed to behind the recent hack of Grand Theft Auto maker Rockstar Games has pled not guilty to the charge of computer misuse but did plead guilty to breaching bail conditions.

In a statement to Eurogamer, the City of London Police's Cyber Crime Unit acknowledged the individual had appeared in court last weekend and was now being held at a youth detention centre.
