Can i practice driving as i am a learner during lockdown? or do i get a fine (UK)?


What about if you do an essential journey such as drive to get food as a learner?

    Definitely considered non-essential travel. 

    You cannot even use the defence of going to buy food as you're then unnecessarily taking a supervising driver out with you who could have justifiably made that trip without you.

    You're definitely risking a fine if you try it as those L-plates will certainly attract police attention as much as if you were driving with a canoe on a roof-rack.

    That would be non-essential travel the police will fine you.

    You "can" but you shouldn't

    No, that is definitely not a good idea.

    You may be fined for non-essential travel.
