A driver will be having an awkward conversation with his mother after police seized his car.
Officers from Breckland Police stopped a Kia Picanto in Norwich Road, Watton.
The 21-year-old told police he was going to pick his own car up and he knew that he had no insurance.
The vehicle was insured but only for his mother to drive.
PC Adam Wengrow said: "He thought it would be okay to go and pick his car up knowing he had no insurance.
