A 50-year-old man from the Polish town of Piotrkow Trybunalski has broken the national record for the number of unsuccessful attempts to pass a driving test. As Notes from Poland clarifies, he managed to "fail" the theoretical part of the exam already 192 times, but he is not going to give up the intention to get the coveted driver's license.
- A resident of Poland began his attempts to officially become a driver 17 years ago. According to some estimates, he spent about 6 thousand zlotys (1,300 euros or more than 115 thousand rubles) on failed exams during this time.
- The number of attempts to pass a driving exam is not limited by Polish legislation. However, as the newspaper writes, after the publication of information about this kind of record, participants in the field of driver training started talking about the need to regulate the number of "approaches". The words of one of the local driving instructors are quoted, who claims that if a person does not know the traffic rules, then he should not drive along the streets, as this may pose a danger to others.
On average, Poles take a theoretical exam for the second or third time, but other long-term cases have also been recorded in the country - for example, 113 attempts. According to Notes from Poland, the UK national record is 158 times, and a woman from South Korea is considered the world record holder in this area: she managed to pass the coveted exam after about 950 attempts.
- The oldest driver was found in Russia in March. Ivan Kurbakov, a 100-year-old resident of Arkhipo-Osipovka, received a certificate from the Russian Book of Records.
