I took the bus to school and accidentally left my keys at home, my boyfriend drove my car without my knowledge and got in an accident. His license was suspended and they said they won't cover the repairs for that reason. I paid out of pocket and the only way I can get reimbursed is to file a police report saying my boyfriend stole my car. I don't want to cause any trouble to him but I'm wondering what the consequences would be for him if I do file the report.

The consequences would be that he will be charged with theft, and his defense was that he had your permission. Tell your boyfriend what your insurance company wants you to do, and ask for repayment. If he refuses, and if you want your money back, then go ahead and file the police report.
