A: Maybe. Driving without a license is a crime. If you are hurt, you may have a claim for personal injuries and not having a license won't affect that. Talk to a PI attorney to discuss.

A: the correct answer is it depends.

if you are making an injury claim you will not be able to collect the same amount as someone with car ins.

if it is reported to DMV you should lose your license for a year.

you should contact a PI lawyer in your area asap......before the other side reports to DMV......if there is no injury claim by either of you, and/or minor injuries that you take care of, then you probably will not have an issue with DMV finding out.

i would consider contacting Kris Beaulieu, the owner of Breathe Easy Insurance, at 857 891 8608 re your situation.

A: If you need to fill out an SR-1 form I would agree that the DMV might take action if you did not receive a ticket from the police.

If you are hurt you may contact an attorney to help you with a personal injury claim since you were not at fault.

Then consult with an attorney to discuss the facts of your case.
