A: Generally speaking, the answer is: Yes. The exception would be jurisdiction, where you need to go to Court. I have been a Court many times, where the Judge dismissed the case, without any penalties, upon proof of license and insurance. Many States do not require that your carry your driver's license with you at all times. Check with your State, to determine if you are required to have these documents with you at all times.
