In April 2005, Cha Sa-soon register for the driver’s license test. She was then 51 years old, but she was far from imagining the obstacle course that awaited her.
And for good reason, he will need 18 years, 950 written tests and 10 driving tests to complete this exam.
After a first failure in the theoretical test, the South Korean decides to delve deeply into obtaining the precious sesame. So she passes the test five times a week, for 3 years, without success! At the end of the 780th attempt, she therefore chooses to reduce the pace, seeing that the repetition does not seem to work with her.
Eventually, after 949 attempts, the 950th is the correct one! But Cha Sa-soon’s epic is not over, there is still the practical test…
A Hyundai offered
Fortunately, this stage does not take as much time for the sixty-year-old who ends up getting his license on the 10th time “only”.
All in all, the South Korean therefore spent a little over 12,500 euros to obtain the precious sesame. A substantial sum, but quickly made profitable by a special gift.
Yes, the grandmother has become, over the years, a real celebrity in Korea. She even shot in a commercial for Hyundai. The local car manufacturer therefore decided to offer her a new car worth 13,000 euros as a reward.
