Two tickets and court, newb needs advice

I got my first ticket(s) in 15 years, for a rolling stop of the Gardiner West ramp at Yonge, by a whole bunch of cruisers under the bridge pegging off people 1 by 1. I didn't have my wallet, so 1 ticket no licence surrendered, 1 ticket fail to stop.

1)Should I use a professional rep in court? or
2) My natural thought would be to pay the no licence ticket, and reschedule the court date later for the no-stopping. I know that all these officers from that day will have at least a dozen of tickets that day each, all scheduled for them the same day in court. If I reschedule later, I expect there is less of a chance of the officer showing up. Make sense? If so how do I post-pone trial for another date? Do I have to have somebody say I am sick during the trial?
3) I figure it doesn't look good to fight both tickets at the same time. ?

Thanks in advance.

Go to court on and speak to the prosecutor, plead to the licence if they drop the moving violation.

Is the no-licence-surrendered considered something insurance can get me for?

Not a moving violation. No points. It's a ticket sure. But does it make you a less safe driver cause you forgot your licence in your other pants? No.

Can I go to that early-meet (forgot what it's called) to do this or do I have to go to court?

Thx again FyreStorm.

It's not really an early "meet", just be there before your scheduled time...you will have a chance to speak to the Crown before the trial..

There's also "First Attendance," if you wanted to resolve it prior to the day of trial.

Well if you want to beat that ticket it is easy.

I don't think they will let me post the answer though.
