Woman who passed driving test on 960th try to buy car
The Yonhap news agency reported on Thursday that 69-year-old Cha Sa-soon passed the driving part of the test last month on her 10th try. South Korea requires a written test first, and Cha took it nearly every day since April 2005 before passing last year.
Yonhap quoted her as saying she wanted to buy a small second-hand car to visit her son and daughter, and for her business selling vegetables.
Officials at the drivers' license agency in Jeonju, 130 miles (210 kilometers) south of Seoul, were not available for comment.
