Can I drive to an MoT test if the 6-month extension doesn't apply to my vehicle?

I have a classic car with an expired MoT. It was due in February so the six-month extension doesn’t apply. I had work and an MoT booked at a specialist garage for mid-April. This is some distance from home. In the current circumstances, am I alright to drive to and from the garage? The car is my regular summer transport.

Current Government advice is that yes you can travel to a pre-booked MoT - but only if it's essential.
