Should I take a preactive roll and enroll in DUI classes before my court date? Should I plead guilty or innocent for this DUI at the end of next month on my court date?

My name Jason Tyndall, and I was pulled over for
‘swirling’ the over night in Dublin off the San Ramon
exist from 580w. This is my conviction, so my driving
record has been okay. I do have difficult time see
sometimes because of my impaired vision. I have
been in a few accidents in the past year because I
have a difficult time gauging depth perception. I did
have a few drinks that night but that was hours
before I drove home. When the officer pulled me
over, he asked me a questions then he requested
me to preform the sobriety. He did not imform me if I
pasted the field test but afterwards, he insisted I take
the breathalyzer test. So I implied. Did the test
twice? And then hen told me my BAC level–1. BAC.
And I was arrested. Put the handcuffs on me and
placed me in the back in the cop car after taking all
of my processions. I was never read my Maranda
rights. And he was admit about taking another test
at the jail-blood test. I told the blood test. Anyway,
this is my first DUI arrest/ charge.
