    You can go down to the TVB office if you want and they'll do it there. Otherwise keep trying the number.

    One caveat - if the ticket was for unbelted kids under 16, I'm fairly certain those are not heard at the TVB as those are point-carrying tickets, which means you'll need to call the DMV (where you will be summarily screwed no matter when your court date is adjourned to).

    no it is not unbelted kid under 16 it was unbelted adult! so basically keep trying the number.

    The court date is far out in Oct. but I know I cannot make it already should I wait till October to call or call now. I am just affraid if I wait and I can never get through I cannot show I will be in a heap of trouble!

    Thanks

    So go down to the TVB as suggested. If you do not get an adjournment, and do not show, they very well may issue a warrant for your arrest.
