What are the consequences for getting caught driving without a license in Michigan?

Will there be consequences if I get caught driving without one? I lost my license during a recent move.

“If you were issued a license but get caught not carrying it while driving in Michigan, you can be convicted of a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail, a fine of up to $100, or both.
If you’re moving from out of state, you’ll need to obtain a valid license within 30 days.
Also make sure your car insurance meets the state minimum car insurance requirements to drive legally in Michigan.”
