Each court is different so I suggest that you call and ask. I've had cases with pre-trial and others without.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 19 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
It varies from court to court. Contacting the court directly is the simplest solution.
I am a former Brooklyn Criminal Court Deputy Bureau Chief with 20 years experience specializing in handling criminal cases. All answers are for information purposes only. Answering this question or any future questions does not form any attorney-client relationship. Be mindful, that answers are limited by the limited facts presented by the questioner and are not meant to take the place of competent legal advice by an attorney fully informed of all the facts surrounding your case. Also, be aware that nothing posted in a public forum such as this can be deemed confidential or privileged communication.
If your case is pending in the Tuxedo Town Court and you plead not guilty then you will receive a notice of a Pretrial conference. See: http://www.tuxedogov.org/departments/court

The information is not guaranteed to be correct, complete, or current. I make no warranty, expressed or implied, about the accuracy or reliability of the information. You should not act or rely on any information at above without seeking the advice of an attorney. The determination of whether you need legal services and your choice of a lawyer are very important matters that should not be based on websites or advertisement
Once you plead "not guilty" the court will mail you a pre-trial conference notice directing you to appear in court on a specific day and time. You should seriously consider representation for this ticket.
