Woman fails driving test 771 times

00.00 | 30 November 2011 |

Police in South Korea say an elderly woman has failed her driving test for the 771st time. But the 68-year-old has apparently told the local media she has no intention of giving up.

The woman, who lives in the city of Jeonju, has taken the test almost every working day since 2005. She failed it again this week, setting a new record for the country.

Her problem is that she cannot pass the written section of the test. The pass mark is 60 out of 100 but she only averages 30-50.

‘Cha’ sells food and household items at apartment complexes, carrying the items in a handcart. She says getting a driving licence would enable her to buy a car and expand the business.

Police estimate she has spent almost £2,500 taking the written tests in addition to other expenses. "I feel sorry every time I see Cha fail," one officer said. "If she ever passes, I’ll make a commemorative tablet and give it to her."
