Sometimes facial errors are enough to have a ticket thrown out; the clerks may not be about to enter the ticket information into the court system without a date. BUT, the cop can always fill it in on his copy and file it that way. The cop's copy is the ticket, all you have is a carbon copy.
The answer is fairly simple however the process can be complicated. Essentially, you have to contact the MVD and have them provide you a copy of your driving record.
