John Charlton, aged 50, was due to enter a plea at St Albans Crown Court on Monday (April 27).
But his hearing was adjourned until next month to give his barrister time to make the application.
Mr Charlton, of Surrey Terrace, Chester le Street in County Durham is charged with causing death by careless driving.
