Can I take my motorhome to a garage during lockdown?

I bought a motorhome in October and since then I found out (from backtracking previous owners in the history) that it has not had a cambelt fitted in the past. It's 11 years old. Can I take it in to have the cambelt and water pump replaced while in lockdown? It's been cancelled 3 times and now it's booked in on 18 January. Would I be breaking the law by taking it in while in lockdown?

If your vehicle is due for an MoT or service, you may be allowed to take it into a garage, but it isn't advised to go anywhere that isn't local for anything that isn't essential. Non-essential repairs are best left until the lockdown is eased or ends entirely. Considering that it's a motorhome rather than a car, I would say that isn't essential work. Now that the measures are reflected in law, police will be enforcing them.
