    I think if you get stopped by the police they will give you a slip saying you need to produce it at the police station within 7 days. But they can check all of this stuff on the computers in their pandas anyway.

    Even if it is in your pocket when/if you get pulled, never say it is. If they are going to do you it is more work for them if they cannot properly identify you at the scene and they might consider a warning instead. Similarly, when/if they ever pull you, NEVER admit to anything. They are trained to use open, leading questions to coerce an admission from you. Choose your answers carefully and without a license, other ID and no admission, you might get off. MIGHT !

    You don't have to, but it does make life easier if you do. A couple of years ago I was pulled over and quite literally accused of stealing my own car. The police checked who the car was registered to (me) and who was the holder of the insurance policy (me) and then demanded to see proof that I was who I said I was - cue handing them my licence.
