My name was spelled wrong on the paper which is the document to appear in court. Would it get dismissed?
Unfortunately, it's not that easy. It won't be dismissed over a clerical error. There are several HOV violations, alas details matter here. One carries a point, the other does not. I would want to see a copy or picture of the citation.

Clerical errors do not get tickets dismissed. Were you cited for being in the HOV lane or crossing into double yellow lines to get HOV lane ( a point violation)

What do you do? You show up in court. The typo on your name doesn't mean the case goes away.
