[Insert Asian Drivers Joke]: Korean Woman Passes Driver’s Test On 950th Try

November 10th, 2009 | 7 comments | Posted by Jen

Cha Sa-soon, a 68 year-old woman in Jeongju, South Korea, has finally passed her driver’s exam after four years, $4,200 in application fees, and 950 attempts.

South Korea Aspiring Driver

Her written driver’s exam, that is. Cha still has to master the driving portion of the test behind the wheel of an actual car (okay, maybe like a Kia rather than an actual car-car) in order to get her license.

I know many of you are thinking, Commence the bad Asian drivers jokes *groan* or Granny’s undoing all my good work and the sweet rep we’ve been building since Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, but I’m really stuck on the fact that she failed her written test 949 times.

I mean, isn’t being awesome at test-taking our goddamn birthright?

Thanks to all the bad drivers who sent this one in.

    hahaha. dude, that’s sort of scary that they would even allow someone to try 950 times…i wonder if the same rules apply for the driving test?

  2. Cindy says:

    I am crushed by her single handed dismantling of what I held to be a universal truth. Now you are going to have to create an Ordinasian of the Week Post.

    White folk are seriously frightened now that Asians will be taking their position in the middle of the bell curve. Is nothing sacred?

    “Ordinasian of the Week” – I love it!

    Seriously, I never learned how to drive. Maybe Cha Sa-soon can teach me?

  4. Shayera says:

    Here’s the thing, wouldn’t after, say the first 100 tests, the questions start getting repetitive? I imagine she’s had every question ever on her written tests.

  5. Simon says:

    I’m actually concerned about that. The written and driving portions of the exam are there for a reason. If you can fail 949 times, you’re more of a threat to society than a joke.

  6. [...] course, it also doesn’t help when you hear stories like how this Korean woman had to take her driver’s test 950 times before [...]
