Auto Transmission

G'day fellow W201 mates!
I've topped up my cars transmission oil yesterday,lucky and stupid me overfilled it, fluid level shows about 1cm above the maximum mark on the dipstick.
Is it safe to drive it like that or should I drain the excess fluid? [emoji8] [emoji35]

Just to be safe, I would drain it back to the correct level.
