When is the hearing date?
Arguably you can simply not show up to the hearing. However i will not recommend this route because you lose out on your opportunity to persuade the court to hand down a lighter sentence.
Therefore i suggest you instruct a local solicitor that will draft witness statement on your behalf which details the hardship both you and people who rely on you will suffer for the punishment they intend to hand down. Further the solicitor in question can also represent you in court to persuade the court to hand down a lighter sentence (reduced/ no points and fine).
Do you understand what i have stated? if not please let me know.
I suggest it's best to be there with the solicitor given the matter will have an important impact on your future on the road.
I hope I have clarified the position if not please let me know
You can represent yourself at the hearing however a solicitor involvement may assist in putting your points across to the court in a more persuasive manner.
And possibly explaining the law a lot better to hopefully achieve the best possible outcome at the hearing
