I also did not have a wallet on me at the dui arrest...my first offense...he only cited me for speeding and dui? But not for having my license...
If he does not file a 1205, then there will no administrative action regarding your license. However, just because he did not cite you for not having your license doesn't mean he did not swear out a 1205. You should contact an experienced DUI Attorney and discuss documents that need to be filed to retain your driving privileges.
Not getting a 1205 is not a guarantee that he just for got to give you your copy of the 1205. Call an attorney and give the whole scenario of what happened for your arrest.

How do you know he didn't? Just because he didn't give you one yet doesn't mean he hasn't filed one.
If the officer didn't file a 1205 then there won't be an administrative hearing, or suspension. Simply because the officer didn't give you a 1205 doesn't mean one wasn't submitted. I recommend filing the 10 Day Appeal Letter to cover yourself. Sometimes officers simply don't file a 1205.
