No - the restrictions on testing come into force on 29 March, and are given below.

Proctor said in an interview during Media Day something along the lines of 'We can always get more test days in, and we will have plenty of opportunity before Brands'. They will also get an extra 5 days permitted during the season because of the new model. I wonder whether any of the CC, Avensis, or Chevrolet cars are allowed this, as the drivers are keen to point out the cars are effectively new?

'Testing after the last race of the 2016 Championship is unrestricted until 5pm, Wednesday,
March 29 2017.
ii) During the course of the 2017 Championship testing will be permitted for entrants on Circuit
General Test Days up to a maximum of 4 days per registered driver (or up to 8 half days). Teams
competing with new design cars will be permitted up to 5 additional test days. For the avoidance
of doubt, ‘new design cars’ are models that have not previously competed in the Championship
under NGTC technical regulations and which are significantly technically different from the make
or model previously used by that Team. The venue and the purpose of the test must be notified
at least 48 hours in advance to the Co-ordinator and a Championship sealed engine must be
used. For the avoidance of doubt any testing by any registered driver, team or entrant of any
kind whatsoever and regardless of the type of vehicle cannot be undertaken at a venue that
hosts a Meeting of the 2017 Championship until after that Meeting, unless with the specific
authorisation of the Administrator.
Using one of the above test days, each team is permitted to test once (with the prior approval of
the Administrator) on a non-exclusive basis at a circuit that hosts a Meeting of the 2017
Championship providing the test takes place no less than 30 days prior to that Championship
Meeting.'
