He is also accused of aggravated vehicle taking. He is said to have taken Mr Hazeldene's Vauxhall Astra without consent and then driven it dangerously, going through several red lights.
Cork is finally charged with driving while disqualified.
Judge Paul Darlow adjourned the case until a trial listed on January 23. Cork was remanded in custody.
Mr Hazeldene was in collision with his own car as he tried to stop it allegedly being taken.
He was initially in a critical condition and an induced coma at Derriford Hospital.
