1. An apparatus for aligning at least one note of value along a transport path comprising:
at least one transport element comprising an endless drive belt;
at least one first drive unit for driving the at least one transport element wherein the transport element is driven by the first drive unit in a first direction of rotation which moves the note of value along the transport path in a transport direction;
first and second rotatably mounted deflecting elements over which the at least one transport element is deflected over; and
a second drive unit for displacing one of the first and second deflecting elements along its axis of rotation, so that by displacing the one of the first and second deflecting elements the note of value contacting the at least one transport element is moved obliquely to the transport direction,
wherein the second deflecting element is arranged downstream of the first deflecting element in the transport direction and is displaced by the second drive unit laterally relative to the transport path.
