People can leave their homes for essential purposes only, including:
• Shopping for basic necessities, for example, food and medicine, which must be as
infrequent as possible
• One form of exercise a day, for example, a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with
members of your household. Stay local for your exercise, using open spaces near to your home where possible – do not travel unnecessarily
• Any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape the risk of injury or harm,
or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
• Travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home (you do
NOT need to be a key worker to travel for work)
There has been no advice about learner drivers. So, learner drivers can drive if they are travelling for an essential reason (as listed above) and that they are accompanied by a member of their household (over 25 years old who has a full driving license – ideally a parent).
