SKorean woman passes driver's exam on 950th try

68-year-old South Korean woman Cha Sa-soon shows her application form for a AP 68-year-old South Korean woman Cha Sa-soon shows her application form for a driver's license in Wanju,
Fri Nov 6, 4:36 pm ET

SEOUL, South Korea A woman in South Korea who tried to pass the written exam for a driver's license with near-daily attempts since April 2005 has finally succeeded on her 950th time. The aspiring driver spent more than 5 million won ($4,200) in application fees, but until now had failed to score the minimum 60 out of a possible 100 points needed to get behind the wheel for a driving test.

Cha Sa-soon, 68, finally passed the written exam with a score of 60 on Wednesday, said Choi Young-chul, a police official at the drivers' license agency in Jeonju, 130 miles (210 kilometers) south of Seoul.

Police said Cha took the test hundreds of times, but had no specific total. Local media said she took the test 950 times.

Now she must pass a driving test before getting her license, Choi said.

Repeated calls to Cha seeking comment went unanswered. She told the Korea Times newspaper she needed the license for her vegetable-selling business.
At least she is still across the pond for now...

I'm thinking the same thing. I could have swore I saw this a while back either on here or on 2WC.

I think a year ago there was a story about how many times she failed. She was up around 900.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
