South Korean Grandmother Fails Driving Test 771 times

A South Korean grandma has failed her driving test 771 times, reports a local newspaper:

The 68-year-old, identified only by her last name Cha, has taken the test almost every working day since 2005 in the southwestern city of Jeonju. She failed again Monday for the 771st time.

"It was a record-breaking number here," Choi Yong-Cheol, a police sergeant supervising the test in the city's Deokjingu district, told AFP.

"I wonder if she will try it again for a 772nd time."

The Korea Times said Cha will in fact be back for another attempt.

Choi said that Cha cannot pass the preliminary written section of the test, averaging scores of 30-50 whereas the pass mark is 60 out of 100.

Perhaps it's not eyesight but senility. She might just be forgetting that she took the test so many times, along with the wrong answers. Stories like these make me glad I left Korea.
