DearCustomer- A police officer can ask any question they please. You do not have to answer or speak to the police so if you refuse to answer they would have to find the answer elsewhere. It is always best not to talk to the police but it is also advisable not to lie. The best advice I can offer is to simply remain silent which is your right at all times.
I'm not certain of the facts surrounding this situation but if your license was legal and you answered "yes" I don't see a problem. If it was not legal and you lied then you would compound the charges of a fake license by adding a charge of lying to a police officer.
