Cops have revealed they were presented with a driving licence bearing Homer Simpson’s details when they stopped a driver in Milton Keynes.
Earlier this week, @tvprp‘s PC Phillips stopped a car in Milton Keynes.
When she tried to identify the driver’s ID, she found the below…
The driver’s car was seized and he was reported for driving with no insurance and driving without a proper licence.

Thames Valley Police pulled over the driver – not believed to be Homer Simpson – on Sunday night in the Buckinghamshire town.
Twitter has reacted to the tweet by Police pointing out that publishing someone’s licence online goes against official advice and could result in fraudsters using Mr Simpson’s details to clone his identity.
Homer faces £1,000 fine
Social media user ,Landshark 008, also pointed out that the licence had an incorrect address on it – Simpson currently lives at 742 Evergreen Terrace – rather than 28 Springfield Way as on the licence – leaving ‘Homer’ open to a £1,000 fine.
Here’s how he could remedy the incorrect address on his driving licence by changing it online.
It’s also clear that the licence ignores photocard photographic guidelines that follow those issued for passports.
Another mistake in Simpson’s details reveal his date of birth is incorrect, the ‘real’ Homer was born on May 12, 1951, rather than August 4, 1963 as stated on the fake.
Police have confirmed the driver was reported for having a false licence and driving without insurance. Doh!
