No.  I've never been asked for it, except at guard gates.  Amazingly enough a business card works just fine.

I have pocket cards for both California and Hawaii. Only in Hawaii do I need to show it--for example, at their membership meetings to get in the door and the vendors ask for them. They run it through a computer that gives them all the information about my brokerage and I end up getting on people's email lists. It's like a credit card with a chip, that doubles for entry with a Sentri lockbox. The California one is just stiff paper; normally don't show that, just a business card will do.

Never - it's not a requiement here.  Nobody has ever asked me either in 28 years. It is intersting to learn that many states do require it and that it's a standard practice.  I didn't know this!  With that said I do check all agents out that submit offers to make sure they are licensed.
