The Government has a progressive approach to these advanced technologies and the Department for Transport is working with other government departments to establish demonstrator projects that will provide valuable understanding of the use of driverless vehicles. The Department will implement a road user behavioural study to run in parallel to trials and is planning to publish a review of regulations to facilitate the use of driverless vehicles in the UK.
