If I'm appearing in court tomorrow and am representing myself, what should I expect?

Question Details: I plan to plead guilty to my DUI charges and any other charges that may be brought along with it. I've never been in court before, so I really don't know what to expect. How long will my hearing be? How should I address the judge? Is "Sir" respectable or is "Your honor" mandated? I appreciate any and all advice I receive.
