A 54-year-old man was caught impersonating his 20-year-old son to take an exam, even getting a perm to make himself look younger, an official said Wednesday. The father, who runs a medicine distribution company, was attempting to take a test to get a license for handling over-the-counter drugs so that his son could work with him, an official in Nara Prefecture.

An examiner noticed the man looked unusually old, said government official Masaaki Nakamori. The father earned his own license last year after using an admission card photo showing him with straight hair and glasses. “This time, he curled his hair and did not wear glasses,” Nakamori said.
