Cha Sa-soon, 68, spent more than 5 million won ($4,200) in application fees, but until now had failed to score the minimum 60 out of a possible 100 points needed to get behind the wheel for a driving test.
According to Choi Young-chul, a police official at the drivers’ license agency in Jeonju, Cha Sa-soon finally passed the written exam with a score of 60 on Wednesday.
Police said Cha took the test hundreds of times, but had no specific total. Local media said she took the test 950 times.
Now she must pass a driving test before getting her license, Choi said.
Repeated calls to Cha seeking comment went unanswered. She told the Korea Times newspaper she needed the license for her vegetable-selling business.
We wish Cha Sa-soon best of luck with the driving test!
