Incorrect name spelling on V5

My wifes name is Brucella, we have just recieved the vehicle reg doc back from DVLA, they have spelt her name as Brulella, will this cause a problem on any borders on a RTW trip, time is tight for us and I wondered if we can blag it or is it imperative that I sort it, thanks in advance,Pete

anything's possible.

can't you just photocopy it, send it back for correction and have it sent out to where ever you are (in Europe) if it doesn't arrive back in time. I left with no drivers license or v5, and had them sent out to south of france.

You DEFINITELY want to get this corrected. In Egypt for instance you WILL lose the bike. They check everything, multiple times, by multiple people. If one thing is wrong it's obviously an attempt to smuggle, and the bike will end up in the huge impound compound from which nothing leaves.

As noted above, get the correct papers sent on somewhere before you cross a border where they'll check the papers closely.

Thanks for the replys folks, it will be dealt with in the morning.

As I am fine combing at the moment, here,s another question.
The actual engine No,s on our two XT 600,S have a hyphen followed by three zeros, like this_000. On the V5 it reads four zero,s,like this, 0000.
The question therefore is, is a hyphen the same as a zero in paperwork speak?
It would seem unlikely that DVLA would make the same mistake on two random docs

Shit folks, I never thought I would be discussing whether a zero is the same as a hyphen when we started planning this.

Never mind crashing,injury, famine, pestilance, running out of gas/water/food, or worse, , GET YOUR ZERO,S RIGHT
