Driverless Cars on UK Motorways Next Year

Driverless Cars on UK Motorways Next Year


The UK government has announced that it will begin testing  driverless cars on motorways for the first time in 2017, as it moves toward its goal of allowing autonomous cars to take to the streets by 2020.

Trials will take place on a small number of local roads later this year. They will be followed by test drives on motorways and major roads next year to ensure the vehicles are safe before their widespread sale and use is permitted.

The government said last year there were no legal barriers to the technology being tested and gave the go-ahead for vehicle trials to start on some local roads.

Chancellor George Osborne will announce in this week's budget that Britain can “lead the world in new technologies and infrastructure”. He wants Britain to be a global leader in a market that could be worth £900bn worldwide by 2025. 

Driverless car testing will be restricted to vehicles with a person present and able to take control should the need arise, Britain’s Department for Transport has previously said.

Experts suggest that driverless cars could eventually eliminate 95 per cent of crashes.
