Coronavirus COVID-19: Advice on buying, owning and running a car during the outbreak | No thanks

Can I drive my car to a rural area to walk around during the lockdown?

Will I be allowed to drive to the countryside alone, just for leisure, if I don't leave my car when there are other people about?

Given the latest Government lockdown advice, I would not recommend using your car unless it's absolutely necessary for the next three weeks. If your vehicle experiences a breakdown or is involved in an accident then it will add more pressure to your potentially stretched local emergency services.

Cheeky question. Is it likely that those over 70, who've had to permanently park their cars for three months (or more) due to Coronavirus, will get a reduction on their car tax?
Our car MoT runs out on 3 April. We have to self isolate as my wife receives annual flu jabs. Will I be able to make essential food shopping journeys if I can't renew MoT, and will insurance be valid?
I'm currently self isolating (am 70 next Friday), however, my service/MoT is due. Is there any news from the DVLA about how it plans to deal with this, We do not have off road parking.
