A lot of tourist rent a motorbike using their driving license the police have been onto that for few years, Make sure your license covers you to ride a bike, I think the law also now states you must have an International Driving Permit

They were checking both Thais and foreigners on motorcycles for misdemeanors like not wearing helmets or not having a licence. 

 

It was standard practice, he said.

No one carries their passport with them, a photo of your passport page and entry stamp/tourist visa/TM 6 should be enough on your mobile. Original international driving/riding permit, licence driving/riding licence from your country should do it, and the rental agreement.

 

Make sure the bike is registered and wear a helmet and you will get waved on, simple really.

 

EDIT: Also a backhander is giving the cop money.

But he also noted that police were within their rights to let off those who were breaking the law as a first offence and show leniency.

What a great statement that basically says "carry on selling leniency guys!"
