South Korean Woman Passes Driver’s License Exam On the 950th Attempt



A woman in South Korea who had tried to pass the written exam for her driver’s license on 949 occasions finally passed on her 950th attempt. Cha Sa-soon, who needs her driver’s license for her business, spent more than $3,500 in application fees. Until now, the 68-year-old had failed to score the minimum 60 out of 100 points needed to attempt the actual physical driving test. When she finally got her license, students and instructors from the Jeonbuk Driving School went out to cheer her, hugging her and giving her flowers. In addition, Hyundai-Kia Automotive Group presented Mrs. Cha with a car valued at $16,800. Mrs. Cha seems to have given new meaning to the favorite Korean saying, “Knocked down four times, rising up five.”
