    DAN5KI97This Achievement should be at least 50 (G) IMO!

    RapidColt713492I want to know the samething superflee2 was asking. After I complete all the events and achieve the burning elite (final license), will it reset?
    Posted by RapidColt713492 on 17 Jan 17 at 20:36
    Sighris@superflee2 and rapidcolt, and anyone else curious, you don't have to do all events after you get to elite burnout. They stay marked off and your license shows completion percent.

    There is talk around the internet of people having trouble unlocking this achievement even after they've done everything, found everything and achieved the 100% completion.

    I know because I was one of those sorry few.

    Don't fret though. Should you find yourself in this situation just go finish another event like a race or a roadrule and the achievement should pop up fine.

    eHeadachesI am at 101%, have done everything, and by rights I feel this achievement should have unlocked. I have won numerous races for the sake of winning them after I have met the requirements but this is still not having any effect on this achievement. Other than starting all over again I dont know what to do with this now.

    Mintage100% can confirm this solution to the glitch. Worked for me as I did not unlock the achievement st 101%. I went to Big Surf and completed a road rule which then unlocked the achievement.

    Achilles8249I had this problem and did what Mintage did and it unlocked for me.

    This is not a solution as much as it is a helpful hint. If you have the Big Surf Island DLC and have access to the dust storm you can do the burning route for that vehicle which rewards you the dust storm super turbo which is an amazing vehicle.

    The stats aren't that impressive but it responds amazingly and it's somewhat fast and sturdy. When you compete in races with this vehicle the game pits you against other dust storms which I found gave me an advantage.

    I used this vehicle on the races and stunts runs on the Elite License and this vehicle was the only reason I was able to complete this game. Once again this is not a solution but a helpful hint. Hopefully this helps other games.
