There are six licenses available in Gran Turismo 3. Five of these licenses are for traditional racing, each level more in-depth and difficult that the last, and the sixth, the Rally (R) License is for Dirt Racing. Each successive 'mainstream' license unlocks the ability to races more difficult race events. These licenses, in order of increasing level, are:

  • B License
  • A License
  • iB License
  • iA License
  • S License
  • R License

Each license is awarded by the completion of seven driving 'exams' followed by a graduation test. Each test is awarded gold, silver or bronze trophies according to performance. While all three types of trophy are considered passes, achieving all gold trophies for a particular license awards the player with a prize car.

B-LicenseEdit

The B license is awarded for completion of the following driving tests:

B-1Edit

Start, Acceleration and Braking 1

License Test B-1
Track Test Course (part of 1st straight), 1km
Car Volkswagen New Beetle 2.0 '00

Gold

0'35.100

Silver

0'35.400

Bronze

0'35.800

In-game text: Accelerate from a standing start and stop as quickly as possible in the goal area beyond the finish line at 1000 meters. It is best to switch from full acceleration to full braking.

B-2Edit

Start, Acceleration and Braking 2

License Test B-2
Track Test Course (part of 1st straight), 1km
Car Dodge VIPER GTS '99

Gold

0'25.600

Silver

0'25.800

Bronze

0'26.300

In-game text: This test is similar to B-1, but with a higher powered test car that accelerates quicker but is heavier, so you need to start braking sooner.

B-3Edit

Basics of cornering - Front wheel drive

License Test B-3
Track Deep Forest Raceway (first corner)
Car Fiat Coupe Turbo Plus '00

Gold

0'31.100

Silver

0'31.400

Bronze

0'32.500

In-game text: Negotiate a left turn after a long straightaway. Brake early and slow before turning. Come in too fast and the car will not turn, but will fly off the outside of the corner. Take it easy going into the corner but hit the gas early coming out. Out of the corner, take full advantage of the track outside edge.

B-4Edit

Basics of cornering - Rear wheel drive

License Test B-4
Track Deep Forest Raceway (first corner)
Car Honda S2000 '99

Gold

0'29.100

Silver

0'29.400

Bronze

0'31.000

In-game text: This test is the same as B-3, but this time you are driving a high-powered rear-wheel drive car, so hitting the gas too early in the corner risks the rear wheels losing their grip for a spin. In cornering, adjust the accelerator a little at a time and feel for when to go full out.

B-5Edit

Applied Cornering: Front-wheel Drive

License Test B-5
Track Grand Valley Speedway (turns 4, 5, 6)
Car Honda CIVIC TYPE R (EK) '98

Gold

0'34.400

Silver

0'34.800

Bronze

0'36.200

In-game text: From a standing start, take three consecutive corners: left, right and left. Rather than going full-out on the first two corners, figure out how to get out of the third corner smoothly by hitting the gas for a fast time. Take the line that puts you in the best shape for getting out of the last corner. Gaining speed on the following long straightaway is more important than anything else.

B-6Edit

Applied Cornering: Rear-wheel Drive

License Test B-6
Track Grand Valley Speedway (turns 4, 5, 6)
Car Mazda MX-5 Miata (NA) '89

Gold

0'33.000

Silver

0'33.300

Bronze

0'34.700

In-game text: This course is the same as in B-5, but with a rear-wheel drive, hitting and releasing the gas causes even larger changes in attitude. Be careful not to disturb the car's behavior. This car demands more delicate accelerator control and more careful steering than a front-wheel drive.

B-7Edit

Basics of Complex Corners

License Test B-7
Track Deep Forest Raceway (Sector 2)
Car Toyota MR-S S Edition '99

Gold

0'33.300

Silver

0'33.800

Bronze

0'35.400

In-game text: Here you run through a blind high-speed winding section. The left-to-right corner just before the tunnel is a very difficult corner. First get experience in a somewhat underpowered car with less risk. The key is to hit the brakes with the car going as straight as possible.

B-8Edit

B-License Final Exam

License Test B-8
Track Trial Mountain (Turns 2-6)
Car Nissan SKYLINE GT-R V • spec (R34) '99

Gold

0'43.000

Silver

0'43.400

Bronze

0'46.000

In-game text: This course has many blind corners. The rocky stretch in the first part requires bold driving with no fear of the rocky cliffs. Use the technique of releasing the gas to turn the car. The speed out of the last left turn has a big effect on the time. The fastest line barely grazes the cliff when coming into the corner and lets out in the depths of the tunnel.

B-License RewardEdit

Collecting all gold trophies from the eight B-License tests awards the player a Mazda MX-5 1.8
