- A man in the UK spent 25 years trying to get his driver's license
- He spent $12-thousand on more than 85-lessons with 14 different instructors
- Eventually, after 33 attempts, he got his license
If nothing else, Christian Whiteley-Mason is a very persistent man. At 42, the British man finally got his driver's license...after an astounding 25 years of trying.
Christian first gave the test a go in 1992, but failed. Over the years, he spent $12-thousand on more than 85-lessons with 14 different instructors, but nothing worked. "I had 56 lessons with my first instructor," Christian remembers, "and eventually he told me to just give up as I would never pass."
After 33 tries, Christian was able to legally get behind the wheel. "I'm so proud of myself. It's changed my life to be honest," he says. "I felt like I'd achieved everything I really wanted to achieve, this was the one thing left I had to do."
