the offence notice (ie ticket) is the charging document, NOT the notice of trial

As stated above, errors on the notice of trial are irrelevant, only errors on the ticket itself are applicable.
In terms of the ticket, I don’t believe an incorrect section is a fatal error, especially if the charge wording is correct. It could certainly be amended if you go to trial.
The only other possibility is to force a fatal error by ignoring the ticket, but I’m really not certain if that would work in your case. Hopefully someone else can advise.
