There is no reasonable suspision to stop a vehicle to check a drivers license alone. You don't have any reason to suspect the license is bad.
I agree, however then teeroux said;

Quote:
It is a crime to carry a concealed handgun not withstanding a permit. If you see what you have a reasonable belief to be a hangun butt in a persons waistband you have a reasonble suspision that a crime is occuring. This is different from your example of driving in that the act of driving itself is not a crime. Carrying a concealed weapon is.
These two statements do not "jive" together. It is not a crime [in Tennessee] to carry a concealed handgun unless you do not have a permit, just as it is not a crime [in Tennessee] to operate a motor vehicle on public roads unless you do not have a permit.

Again;
Quote:
You don't have any reason to suspect the license is bad.

I do not see a distinction between the two and, in fact, there is none.
