traffic ticket

A cop pulled me over for failing to signal. On the ticket he put my right name and plate number. The make and year of the car is wrong, Can i beat it in court?

As long as he saw your license and got the right plate number, it is doubtful. You could even get nailed for driving a different car than you own or have licensed (switched plates).

Can you tell the difference between all car makes, models and years? - Good try.

..... and if your guilty, stand up and pay the fine. If your not guilty, I would think there would be better evidence to protest the ticket.

I agree.
If the officer got the vehicle and year wrong there is a possibility that the registration is wrong.
This could be a bigger problem than a ticket for failing to signal.
You should check into this in case your insurance is affected.
