Is it OK to drive during lockdown 2?
Although we’ve all been here before, the second country-wide lockdown is just as serious as the first.
A few things have changed since March, so check you know when you can drive during lockdown.
The government’s rules say you can drive if:
- You have to go to a place of work or education
- You’re going to a shop for necessary items like food or household goods
- You’re going somewhere for exercise
- You’re going to a medical appointment, or picking up medication for yourself or a vulnerable person
- You’re taking a child to school or their secondary home (if parents live separately, for example)
- You need to leave a potentially dangerous situation
- You’re providing care for someone
- You’re visiting a member of a support bubble
So, quite a few valid reasons to drive during lockdown. However, you must stick to these rules or you risk being fined by police for unnecessary travel.
Check the full government guidance on the current rules.
