An elderly woman in South Korea has failed her driving test a staggering 771 times, according to police.

But the 68 year old has apparently told the local media she has no intention of giving up.

The woman, who lives in the southwestern city of Jeonju, has taken the test almost every working day since 2005.

She failed it again this week, setting a new record for the country.

The Korea Times said the woman, identified only by her last name Cha, plans to make another attempt.

Her problem is that she cannot pass the written section of the test.

The pass mark is 60 out of 100 but she only averages 30-50.

Cha sells food and household items at apartment complexes, carrying the items in a handcart.

She says getting a driviing licence would enable her to buy a car and expand the business.

Police estimate she has spent almost £2,500 taking the written tests in addition to other expenses.

"I feel sorry every time I see Cha fail," one officer said. "If she ever passes, I'll make a commemorative tablet and give it to her."
