    "Police estimate she has spent almost five million won to take the written test, with each test costing 6,000 won (£2,980) in addition to other expenses. "

    THAT is the definition of insanity. I'm all for never giving up your dreams but sheesh! There must be more to the story. She probably has some kind of mental deficiency.

    Hmm. Are Korean traffic laws that hard to memorize to be able to take the test?

    Well, she's certainly not helping to dispel any stereotypes. . .

    6,000 won = about 5 bucks.

    I'd find them very hard to memorize, but I don't speak or read Korean. :bag:

    Heh, someone at the newspaper needs to learn how to do math then, if 6000 won = $5 = £2,980. Or maybe they put the £2,980 in the wrong place, and it should be after the 5 million.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Seriously, if she needs 771 attempts to pass the WRITTEN test, (which I passed for the first time, unofficially, when I was thirteen) I wonder how many times she'll need to take the road test.

    And I wonder if any insurance company would insure her.

    She can't actually be studying for the test between tests. I'm surprised they don't have a mandated waiting period before the test can be taken again after, oh say the 50th or 100th failure.

    I can't imagine climbing into a car with this lady for a driving test if she ever does pass the written test. But I suppose the people that do that for a living are used to all kinds. An occupational hazzard of sorts.

    Reminded me of this guy who was taking the driving course with me.
    He absolutely couldn't drive,the instructer told me they were fed up with him,he was there for the 11th attempt and still driving them crazy,he said they were gonna pass him no matter what this time.:p

    So the day comes for the practice exam,we go to a busy 4 way street.I was listening to Metallica real LOUD then heard the skies falling.The car was at the lights and he had to take off since it turned green.Car turned invisible due to smoke.One of his feet were on the clutch the other on the gas he was on a roll.

    They passed him.:D
