Police officers in the town of Milton Haynes, England, were in for a surprise recently when, during a routine traffic stop, a driver handed out Homer Simpson’s license instead of his own.
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.

According to The Huffington Post, “Homer” was also driving around without insurance, so his car was seized and he got into trouble for both offenses.
The image of Homer’s license was released by the Thames Valley Police Department’s Twitter, where they explained what had happened. It went viral soon after, and Twitter users were quick to come up with the best clap backs and Simpson appropriate .gifs that they could find.
Clearly a fake. Homer lives at 742 Evergreen Terrace.

We’d also like to point out how confused that license is. On the top corner there’s a UK icon, but on the bottom left, where the address is supposed to be, it claims that Homer is from Springfield, USA. What’s the truth here?
