SEOUL – A South Korean woman (South Korea) finally passed the test to get driving license (SIM) on the 960th exam. During those hundreds of trials, he has spent more than £11,000 or more than Rp.204 million.
Cha Sa-soon (69) first attempted the written test in April 2005 and after failing the first time, she continued to take it every day, five days a week, for three years—a total of 780 attempts.
He then started taking tests only twice a week until he finally passed—before having to move on to practical tests.
He passed his driving test after 10 tries—meaning he took 960 tests in total before finally getting his driver’s license.
The woman didn’t give up because she needed a driver’s license for her vegetable selling business.
Quoting a report from The Mirror, Monday (27/3/2023), Cha spent more than IDR 204 million to get his SIM.
Park Su-yeon, his driving instructor at Jeonbuk Driving School said he was relieved when Cha Sa-soon finally got his driver’s license.
“When he finally got his license, we all went cheering and hugging him, giving him flowers,” said Park.
“It felt like a huge weight was dropping off our backs. We didn’t have the guts to tell him to stop because he kept showing up.”
