Is it illegal to not carry a license with you in Utah?

What will happen if I get pulled over or get into an accident? I frequently drive my wife's car and sometimes forget to bring my driver's license when I do.

Answer
“While Utah law requires that all drivers carry their licenses while driving, not having your license in your possession is only an infraction and will typically result in only a $50 fine (at worst).
Most judges will dismiss the ticket if you show up to court with proof that your license was valid at the time you were pulled over.
In order to drive legally, you’ll also need to carry proof of car insurance, and if you drive your wife’s car frequently, you should be added to her policy (if you’re not already).”
