I am driving from home to a business meeting, so its business mileage, but I have to drop my spouse at work which is a few Km's off the normal route to my destination. Can the total distance driven still be claimed as business travel?

If you are not going out of your way and the distance is the same then you can claim it, otherwise just claim the distance between the venues. However if you are salaried then only the distance from office to the meeting is actually allowed to be claimed.
