Should I do a weekly drive during lockdown to make sure my car stays in good condition?

Should I take my car out for a run each week whilst I am not using it on a regular basis?

I would not recommend using your car for the next three weeks unless it's absolutely necessary. If your vehicle is involved in an accident or breakdown, for example, you will potentially be stranded and/or requiring police or hospital help. Our advice is to stay at home until the lockdown lifts in three weeks. For all of our coronavirus help, see:

The DVLA call centre isn't open due to Covid 19. I posted my V5C application two weeks ago. The website now says no paper applications until further notice. Will my application be processed?
