In her 950th attempt, a Korean woman has finally passed her driving theory test. Yes, you read it right. It was the 950th attempt for the theory test. According to news sources, Cha Sa-soon, 68, has been repeatedly trying to pass the multiple-choice exam since April 13, 2005. Even after intensive coaching, her results only barely touched the 60% pass mark that had eluded her for so long.
How she managed to appear 950 times in the same exam? According to news sources, Cha Sa-soon has taken the test every day apart from weekends and holidays. It cost her more than £6,000 in bus fares and test fees. But the greengrocer, of Jeonju, near Seoul, still has to tackle and pass the more difficult practical test before she can drive.
Why Ms Cha was so desperate to pass the exam? Actually, she need a driving license for her green groceries business. Because of her commitment to pass the driving theory exam, Ms Cha has already become a local celebrity, a Japanese reality TV star and a symbol of undaunted spirit, reports The Times.
