Prison Transport Bus

During the Jail Break mission, you must drive a prison transport to the prison. When you get there, a gate will open. Stop in the way of the gate so that it cannot close, and do not completely enter. There should be a gray school bus to your left marked "Prison Transport System" on the side. Get into it, drive to the garage, and store it. Quickly get back to the prison and into the transport. The mission will continue as usual, but you must break through the rest of the three gates yourself. They are easy to break; just drive through them. Note: This vehicle is only available once.

Easy money

Win a circuit race without hitting the wall or the other racers to earn a $10,000 clean driver bonus.

On the third mission where Ray asks you to collect $1,500 and deliver the money to his Auto Shop in La Guardia, enter the La Guardia Circuit Race. Win first place on any difficulty setting. After completing the race, the Circuit will close and you will not be able to race again. Save the game (provided that the autosave feature is turned off) and restart the mission. The La Guardia Circuit Race will now be re-opened, but you will retain the money you won from the last race. Repeat this to continue earning as much money as desired. Once you have the money you need, return to Ray's Auto Shop and to the green marker to make upgrades to your cars. This makes it easier to win the La Guardia Races. To complete the mission and continue the game, have at least $1,500 and go to the yellow marker at Ray's Auto Shop at the start of the mission.

Free parts and mods

Go to a garage and start a race. Before selecting the difficulty, go to your garage. Customize and repair all the cars your money will allow. Exit the garage and start the race. Once the race has begun, restart it. Your money will be returned, but all the mods and parts will remain. Note: The car you accept the race in cannot be modded for free. Also, the more money you have, the less you will have to repeat this trick.

Customize cars for less

Successfully complete the game, then choose the car or bike store at Rays. If it is for the 2006 Era, go to the 1978 Era and customize it for ten times less money.

Ray's erotic pictures

In all of Ray's Auto Shops in the 1978 Era, go up the steps, and zoom in on the table. You will see a picture of a topless girl as well as other pictures around the shop.

Weird fence behavior

Get an AI car on its side and have it smash through a destructible fence. The car will go through the fence without damaging the car or fence. Follow the AI car through the fence, and you will smash the fence. Note: Try this near Ray's Auto Shop.

Driver references

Driver posters are visible on the walls of the 1978 safe house. Graffiti reading "Tanner Lives" can be seen on the walls of the 2006 safe house. Driver strategy guides are found on a magazine rack in police headquarters. If you look closely at some cars, you will notice they are exact replicas of cars around the city in the original Driver. Every traffic car from the first installment of Driver is in the game, since both games are set in the 1970's.

DRIV3R reference

Go outside the building where you got shot by the corrupt policeman in the "Kidnap" mission in the 1978 Era. Use a gun to zoom in on the contents of the yellow dumpsters to see thrown away copies of DRIV3R.

Stuntman reference

Stuntman posters are visible on the walls of the 1978 safe house.

Programmer references

Look on the newspapers blowing around the streets, taxi signs, the safe house dart board, and the safe house refrigerator door to see photos of the development team. The Reflections logo can be seen as graffiti on some walls. The Atari logo can be seen on a neon signs at Times Square.
