Never heard of having to have your driving licence with you for compliance checks.

 

I never carry mine since it's not a legal requirement to do so.

 

I've been stopped a few times now, and never been asked for my driving licence.

I agree, but is better safe than sorry. They will take any chance to make you waist time , some even 2 hours. if youre not sure you can always record them with your phone;)
