If at first you don’t succeed - try another 949 times

We first reported this last November. Now the story is back in the news.

A 68-year-old woman in South Korea finally passed the written test for her driving license after 950 attempts.

Cha Sa-Soon (pictured) finally scored the 60 percent required after taking the exam nearly every day since April 2005.

It was reported that she spent more than five million won ($4,200) in the process.

But, that’s only half of her way to a driving license.

"I still have to pass the real driving test but I think it will be easier for me to pass than the paper test," she said, adding that she needed a driver's license for her vegetable-selling business.
