They send me a letter about early resolution meeting. I didn't go because of snow storm. After that they send me a letter with date of trial. I requested disclosure. they send me photocopy of police officer's notes and my full driving record, with all tickets in the past.
When I came for trial, there was a notice to see prosecutor before going to court room. Prosecutor offered me 200$ +cost, because I had no tickets. I saw one man, for the same offence he was offered 300$ plus cost, probably he had other tickets.
Also, you can delay the trial. You can ask police officer to type his notes. If he doesn't - you can ask to reschedule the trial, to get additional 3-4 month, may be good enough to renew insurance.
For me it ended with original fine, 490, I lost the trial, of course, but it was valuable experience. Good luck!
