According to MSNBC.com, she has tried to "pass the written exam for a driver's license with near-daily attempts since April 2005 has finally succeeded on her 950th time".
Even more amazing is that this woman spent 5 million won (USD $4,200) in application fees for the same damn test! She could have saved that money by taking the bus, a cab, or even walking!
What I really want to know is why now, in her 50 some years of being eligible for a driver's license, why she chose to start in the last few years? Maybe she didn't need it before; maybe she was married and her husband wouldn't allow it; maybe she couldn't afford it. Yes, there are multiple maybes, but maybe she shouldn't have waited until she was dependent on a walker, was a full member of AARP, and had more wrinkles than Bea Arthur's inner thighs to get her license!!!
Here's a tip for you lady--move to Florida; if you have a pulse, the state of Florida will NOT hesitate to give you a driver's license, and you can even take the test in a variety of languages! Don't feel too bad though; the Florida DOT is just as dumb as you are.
