Former Jackass prankster Johnny Knoxville came up with a novel idea to make his driver's licence picture interesting - he dressed up as a priest.

The former TV prankster is proud he was able to fool a staff member at the US Department Of Motor Vehicles with his trick.

He says, "I went to the DMV and I was really nervous that someone would spot me. I go up and I talk to the lady and she's typing in my information and some guy from behind the counter goes, 'Oh, Knoxville! I love you!' I was like, 'Okay, I'm busted.'

"He walks away and the lady goes, 'Sir, are you an actor?' I'm like, 'No ma'am, I get mistaken for him all the time. He is a horrible person.' She said, 'So you are a priest?' I said, 'Yes ma'am.' She goes, 'Here you go.' I said, 'God bless you,' and I ran to the picture booth."
