Woman Passes Driving Test on 960th Attempt

Cha Sa-soon, 69, has become something of a celebrity in her native Korea after trying hundreds of times to pass the test necessary to get a driver's license. She finally made it:

For three years beginning in April 2005, she took her driving test once a day, five days a week. After that, her pace slowed, to around twice a week.

"When she finally got her licence, we all went out cheering and hugged her, giving her flowers," said Park Su-yeon, an instructor at Jeonbuk Driving School.

He said that Mrs Cha would not be a danger, since it was on the written part of the test, rather than the practical side, that she had failed so many times.

I've driven in Korea, and it seemed like everybody on the road had aggressively failed the driving test. Bonus: my defensive driving skills are mad l33t now.

I once worked with a guy who admitted to me that he had failed the written test something like 5 times. On the 6th try, the woman who graded the tests, who had come to know him by then, felt sorry for him and fudged the grade to let him pass.

Really, if a guy fails 6 times in a row, he has proved himself to be the sort of person who should not be allowed behind the wheel of a car.
