A man has been pulled over in Sydney’s southwest with police discovering he has 148 demerit points on his licence.

The man, 35, was stopped behind the wheel of a Toyota Kluger on Zouch Road, Denham Court on March 10 about 1.30pm.

“He produced a Queensland driver’s licence to police claiming to have just moved into New South Wales. A detailed check into the man's driving history told a different story,” police said.

“Roads and Maritime Services had withdrawn the man's driving privileges in New South Wales on the basis that he was not a fit and proper person to be driving on New South Wales roads.”

Police said his “poor driving” saw him earn 148 demerit points since December 2017.

“He was issued a court attendance notice for driving whilst his New South Wales driving privileges had been withdrawn,” police said.

It is not clear what offences the man had committed to earn his hefty demerit point haul.

People shocked by motorist's driving record

On Facebook, people were shocked by the driver's staggering number of demerit points.

“Is that a record?” one man wrote.

Others added “clearly he will not learn” and questioned why he was still driving.

Some saw the funny side of the situation, with one woman writing: "Now this man takes his points seriously".

Another man added: "I thought I was bad".
