You should make sure that your copy of your driver's license record is certified, which might mean you have to pay a small extra fee to MVD. That will make sure that the court will accept your copy.
Buying new headlights, after you were stopped for driving without them, probably won't help, but I hope you saved the receipt, so that you don't have to ask the court to just take your word for it.
Losing your car is a pretty serious risk, and it's worth hiring an attorney to defend the case. If you need to find a lawyer, you can do that at http://attorneypages.com
