If you gave permission then yes they can search your person and your wallet. NEVER give permission to allow a search regardless if you have anything to hide or not, it does not implicate any type of guilt regardless of what the cop say. It is your constitutional right to not allow the search and be respectful but unless they have a warrant they cannot conduct a search and a traffic stop is not probable cause according to the US Supreme Court. Once you give permission then they have the right.

No, you can hand them your license but that's it. In most jurisdictions police are only allowed to look around the driver's seat, but may not search the whole vehicle. If you were a known drug dealer, then the law changes, but that's not the case. Know your rights, citizen.

You shouldn't ever allow a police officer to search your vehicle, even if you have nothing to hide. Tell them to get a warrant.

Yes he also has the right to give you a cavity search! Just be grateful he stopped there.
