JEONJU, South Korea, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- A South Korean woman who has failed her driver's exam 771 times said she has signed up for another attempt in the hope that number 772 will be the charm.

Choi Young-cheol of the Driver's License Agency in Jeonju, South Korea, said the 68-year-old woman, who was identified only as Cha, began taking the written driver's test in April 2005 and re-attempted the exam on a daily basis until eventually slowing to one test attempt per week, CNN reported Thursday.

"You have to get at least 60 points to pass the written part," said Kim Rahn of the Korea Times. "She usually gets under 50."

The Driver's License Agency said Cha, whose last test was Monday, has spent an estimated $3,000 on exam fees. Cha said she is planning her next test attempt for Thursday or Friday.
