If you are ever driving in Seoul South Korea you may want to stay away from Seo Sang-moon. He finally “passed the academic part of his driver’s license examination on his 272nd attempt earlier this week.”
Since the oral exam was launched, Seo took the test as often as he could, paying about $1,000 in fees along the way. Each failure taught him a little more, and after 271 attempts, he was able to get the minimum score needed to pass the academic test.
“He has been coming here for more than five years and we regard him almost as being one of the family,” an official from the exam office said by telephone.
God only knows the havoc he may reek while trying to pass the road test.
