They want your license in their sticky little hands , otherwise they don't have any bargaining power. Not sure why this is not generally accepted.

The new laws passed maybe earlier this week states that with the steady roll-out of automated systems including speed and red-light cameras and tickets in the mail, there's no legal reason for the police to keep your driving license any more.

Why didn't you simply show him your license?

Easily fits in a wallet, glovebox or even wedged above the drop down sun visor gizmo.

Maybe I'm missing something here - not an unusual occurrence - but why would anybody drive (in any country in the world) without carrying their driving licence?

Whenever I drive a longer distance, I always carry my permit. 

 

   Plenty of other countries would fine you for not having your license with you, so i don't see anything the cops did wrong.

Letter on dining table, reads as per below.

 

Dear wife, since you took my drivers licence out of my wallet and didn't put it back in again, dinner for two is on you Tiruk 💘👅 

 

Sorted

Don't know what you understand as a " a good dinner for two" but you could have taken a ticket, present the original at the police station and being fined B 400 for not having the valid license on you. 
There is no need to deal with this highway robbery attacks; stay cool and ask for the white slip. You have to see the police station but the crook will go empty-handed (as far as fining you is concerned), the money goes there where it belongs and is usually cheaper than the wild tariffing of those highwaymen 😉

Get the DLT QR Licence app on Play Store and register. Then you have your DL on your phone 'legally'.

 

check your licence! Mine is valid but approx. 3 yrs old and it does not have the code on its back yet - then you won't get any further with the DLT app

I believe there is an option somewhere to do it without the QR code....so my GF says.

I never carry my licence in UK and most people I know don't there is no need to as the Plod just PNC (Police National Computer) you, they know if you have a valid licence and everything else. 

 

However... 

When in LOS I have my Thai Motorcycle licence in a waterproof bag with copy of Passport sat with toolkit under bikes seat, love OP's remark later on in thread that its also his Mrs fault for checking his date on licence 555 You had no licence take some responsibility already?

Well OK, just a slight tap.

Officer writing my name on his doc told me to show the picture again so he could read/write my name. Apparently for the fine, the picture of the DL was good enough.

"Probably I was wrong and not read the article through"? You think?

I never carry my licence in my wallet. I have a separate case for carrying my Thai Licences, my Aust drivers licence, my Aust boat drivers licence, all separated from my wallet, that way when I get stopped and they want my licence I do not have to open my wallet for them to see any money
