After 960 attempts and more than $34,039 (FJD) spent on getting her license, a South Korean woman finally passed her driving exam.

Cha Sa-soon, 69, took the written test for the first time in April 2005. After her initial failure, she proceeded to try it daily for three years, making a total of 780 attempts.

Afterwards, she reduced the number of times she took the test each week until she passed, at which point she had to move on to the practical test.

She failed the driving test ten times before passing it, which means she had to undergo 960 tests in total before receiving her license.

The woman persisted because she needed the license for her company that sold vegetables.

She reportedly paid close to$34,039 (FJD) to get her driver’s license.

When Cha Sa-soon finally received her license, her driving instructor at Jeonbuk Driving School stated he felt relieved.
