When police pulled over a driver for a traffic stop in Milton Keynes, UK, last Sunday they were surprised to find he was carrying a driving licence with the details of Homer Simpson from well-known cartoon the Simpsons.

The document, a fake of the pink UK driving licence, even had a picture of the yellow character.

In addition to this, the name cited on the card was H. Simpson, and the address 28, Springfield Way, USA.

Thames Valley Police shared a picture of the of the permit on their Twitter account saying the car was seized and its driver reported for driving without a proper licence.

Twitter users were quick to point out innacuracies on the document. Mark Chunder wrote: "Clearly a fake. Homer lives at 742 Evergreen Terrace."

In addition to the rather questionable fake identity, officers also found that the man was driving without insurance.

In the words of Homer himself...D'oh!
