They only check for licenses at chalong roundabout in the hours late morning and early afternoon.. At later hours they only direct traffic (tho they will still stop you if you are not wearing a helmet)
Luckily for people like you and me there are shortcuts/detours you can take to dodge the roundabout in the police baht collecting hours.
On another but slightly related note me and a friend were driving home from Kamala the other day at like 3 am.
We (well I) managed to piss off a car filled with drunk thai guys and in our getaway attempt (we drive Clicks so it probably wouldve been a short chase.........) I managed to violate a traffic law or two and the police were obviously on the spot to collect a few baht from the farangs.......
