Pensioner passes her driving theory test on her 950th go

A South Korean woman has passed the written exam for her driver’s licence on her 950th try.

Cha Sa-soon has been making near daily attempts at the test since April 2005 and has spent more than £2,500 in application fees.

The 68-year-old finally scraped through with the minimum pass rate of 60 out of 100 points on Wednesday.

Sa-soon must now pass her practical driving test before she is awarded her full licence.

The determined pensioner told the Korea Times newspaper she needed her licence for her vegetable-selling business.
