Ya Allah, saya agak terperanjat apabila membaca tajuk berita di laman Yahoo.com yang berbunyi:

SKorean granny fails driving test 771 times

Kuatnya semangat dia!!! heheh

Terbayang bagaimana keadaan saya ketika gagal ujian memandu pada kali ketiganya. Allah sahaja yang tahu perasaan saya pada waktu itu. Memang saya patah semangat dan memakan masa yang agak lama bagi saya kembali ke Akademi memandu untuk belajar dan menduduki sekali lagi ujian memandu. Dan Alhamdulillah, hasil usaha dan sokongan suami saya, akhirnay saya lulus juga ujian memandu pada kali keempat.

Apapun hari ini saya tidak mahu bercerita tentang ujian memandu saya.Sekadar ingin berkongsi kisah nenek yang masih tidak putus harapan untuk mendapatkan lesen memandunya =)

AFP - Thursday, February 5

SEOUL (AFP) - - A dogged South Korean grandmother has failed her driving test 771 times, police said Thursday, but a local newspaper reported she will keep trying.

The 68-year-old, identified only by her last name Cha, has taken the test almost every working day since 2005 in the southwestern city of Jeonju. She failed again Monday for the 771st time.

"It was a record-breaking number here," Choi Yong-Cheol, a police sergeant supervising the test in the city's Deokjingu district, told AFP.

"I wonder if she will try it again for a 772nd time."

The Korea Times said Cha will in fact be back for another attempt.

Choi said that Cha cannot pass the preliminary written section of the test, averaging scores of 30-50 whereas the pass mark is 60 out of 100.

Local media said that Cha sells food and household items door to door at apartment complexes, carrying the items in a handcart, but wants to get a car for her business.

Police estimate she has spent almost five million won (3,600 dollars) to take the written test, with each test costing 6,000 won in addition to other expenses.

"I feel sorry every time I see Cha fail. When she passes, I'll make a commemorative tablet myself and give it to her," one officer was quoted as saying.
