What happens if I get pulled over without a license in Arizona?

What happens if I get caught without it? I have a license, but sometimes I take it out of my wallet and forget it at home.

“If you have a valid driver’s license but are pulled over while it’s not in your possession, you’ll have to pay a $120 fine (plus surcharges).
If you don’t have a valid Arizona license at all, the consequences are much more severe and could result in fines up to $750 and jail time.
Also keep in mind that to drive legally in Arizona, you must meet the state minimum car insurance requirements.”
