Do I have to give a police officer my driver’s license if he or she stops me in my car?

If you are driving a motor vehicle you must show your license to do so, as driving is a privilege instead of a right. If you receive a citation, you must provide the required information for the ticket. When being issued a citation, you are being released on your promise to appear in court or provide the appropriate bond before the appearance date. You must sign the citation promising to do so, it is not an admission of guilt.
