South Korean driver earns license on 960th try
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - May 6, 2010 -- A South Korean woman who earned a driver's license after 960 tries is ready to buy a car and get behind the wheel.
Yonhap news agency reported Thursday that 69-year-old Cha Sa-soon passed the driving part of the test last month on her 10th try. South Korea requires a written test first, and Cha took it nearly daily since April 2005 before passing last year.
Yonhap quoted her as saying she wanted to buy a small secondhand car to visit her son and daughter and for her business selling vegetables.
Repeated calls seeking comment from her went unanswered.
Officials at the drivers' license agency in Jeonju, 130 miles south of Seoul, were not available for comment.
