That IS what you carry insurance for. Contact the police to fill out a report, then turn it in to your insurance. If this is your first claim, it shouldn't affect your rates. If it's NOT he first claim, you might want to consider off-street parking.

Hopefully you have insurance. Call the police, if you weren't driving the vehicle at the time of impact, then it shouldn't matter that you don't have a license. After the police have filed a report, file a claim with your insurance company. If you have no insurance, call the police anyway. But know that you will have to foot the bill for all damage because you don't have insurance.
