No I have court date 03/20/18 I just wanted to know what to expect.

Thank you. You need to decide if you want to fight this and contest it or take a plea and resolve it. The burden is on the State to prove the charge against you beyond a reasonable doubt, so if nobody saw you behind the wheel driving and you did not admit to anything when investigated, they may have a hard time. Of course, you can take a plea and resolve this. Now, if you advise and they learn you had a seizure, you likely could have your license suspended as well, for health reasons, for a period of time.

if I just pled guilty pay fine what will likely happen?

If you take a plea deal, they would likely impose a fine, court costs, restitution and make consider probation or a driving class. It would be on your record and this could affect your insurance as well.

But no jail?

Not for something like this, if you are a first time offender. Unless someone was seriously injured, jail would be a last resort.
