File the claim. That's what you have insurance for. He probably made a few phone calls and got 'sticker shock' at the cost of even minimal damage repair. Or maybe someone convinced him he should file the claim. Either way, just file the claim with your carrier. Waiting and second-guessing will just get costlier for everyone involved.Don't worry about no police report being made. Adjusters conduct their own investigation anyway; police reports are useful for details about the vehicles, the location, and the drivers, but they DO NOT make the liability decisions. They are not employed by the insurance company - the company hires adjusters to make the liability decisions. Police officers are interested in civil traffic code and issuing citations; insurance carriers are interested in far more detail about the accident than police reprots offer.

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.
