I don't have the time to go to my court date (I'll be in school a few hundred miles away.)

I read the CVC and it says I can take care of it via mail. What's the procedure on this? What do I need to include in my written request?
Due to the fact that you need to present proof of insurance coverage (had to be valid at the time of the stop), I think you have to go to court. Why not just extend the date once or twice until you can make it?
