To prove that you have paid restitution keep the check, copy of a money order or cashier's check.  Basically retain anything that shows that payment has been made.  Getting the victim to sign off on a statement to that effect is also proof.  This then can be presented to the court to show that restitution has been made.

If you are a parolee there are specific steps to take, I've provided you with a link:  http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/Victim_Services/parolee_payment_instructions.html
