I had an initial court date back in September 2015 for Driving while under Suspension (along with Driving w/o proper headlights, which is the reason why I was stopped in the 1st place). The prosecutor gave me the option to the lesser charge of Driving without license but I decided not to take the plea and asked for a trial. The main reason for that was I didn't want my insurance premium to go up which came up for renewal in February 2016. Now that the trial date is coming up in March 2016, I was wondering if there's a way for me to take that lesser charge rather than actually go to trial in a courtroom. This is what I realize that I should have looked into this matter a lot earlier but I did want to wait until after my insurance premium renewed in February 2016.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanking everyone in advance,

Much appreciated it,
