I don't know what help you expect to get other than me telling you that: 1) this is 100% on you, 2) that these are the foreseeable risks that you run when you have a vehicle registered in your name and do not have it insured, 3) that you can go after the other driver's insurance company to repair your car's damages, 4) that if you had been lawfully insured then your company would have collected for you (and made sure the repairs and rental and whatever else was covered), 5) that if you want a driver license then you are going to have to go out of pocket and 6) even though you didn't cause (or have anything to do with) the accident you shafted yourself.
"it didn't make sense to pay for insurance since it's not moving"... um, yeah, it did, and now you know why.
Wishing you better judgment, luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
