It is almost impossible to say what the French police will do. If you are stopped, they may just let you go on your way after your explanation, or they may insist that you show up at a designated police station with a valid license within some time period. You will have to take your chances. At least you do have a valid license, but make sure your insurance properly covers you for the trip, keep your speed well within the legal limits, and make sure your car is current with the Controle Technique. Good luck.
