To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will list (1) all autonomous or semi-autonomous driving trials approved in the UK, and (2) any approved on public roads.
The UK’s Code of Practice provides guidance on testing automated vehicle technologies on public roads or in other public places in the UK.
The Government does not approve trials of automated vehicle technology that are carried out in line with the current UK Code of Practice. It is for manufacturers to ensure they are taking appropriate steps to ensure their trials comply with the law.
Information about the trials that are being co-funded by Government is available as a booklet entitled “UK Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Research and Development Projects 2017” online. A copy of the booklet is attached for ease of reference.
