A South Korean woman recently demonstrated that perseverance pays off. After 960 attempts, 69 year old Cha Sa-soon passed all the tests and was awarded a driver’s license. South Korea requires both a written and driving test before a person can receive a license. Cha took the written test almost every day since April, 2005. Once passing that requirement, Cha began to work on the driving portion. Although it took ten attempts, Cha finally achieved her goal. She plans to buy a used car so she can visit her son and daughter, and to help make her small business selling vegetables more profitable.
