A South Korean woman has finally succeeded in passing her driving test on her 960th attempt.

Cha Sa-soon passed a written exam on her 950th try last year by spending about £11,000, including application fees.

In South Korea, an aspiring driver must pass a written exam to get behind the wheel for a driving test.

The 69-year-old failed several driving tests before finally passing on her 960th trip last month.

Cha said she needed the licence for her vegetable-selling business.
