South Korean Woman Passes Driving Test At 960th Attempt

South Korean grandmother Cha Sa-soon, 69, whose surname coincidentally means 'vehicle' in Korean, has become a national celebrity by passing her driving test at the 960th attempt. For three years beginning in April 2005, she took her driving test once a day, five days a week. After that, her pace slowed, to around twice a week.

It is believed that Mrs Cha will not be a danger in traffic, since it was on the written part of the test, rather than the practical side, that she had failed so many times. I wanted to get a driver's licence so I could take my grandchildren to the zoo, Mrs Cha explained.

Her last name also sounds like 'tea' in korean too.
