Disengagement Reports

Yeild Street Sign

Autonomous vehicle manufacturers that are testing vehicles in the Autonomous Vehicle Tester (AVT) Program and AVT Driverless Program are required to submit annual reports to share how often their vehicles disengaged from autonomous mode during tests (whether because of technology failure or situations requiring the test driver/operator to take manual control of the vehicle to operate safely).

DMV archived the disengagement reports from 2015-2018. They are available upon request. 

Email AVarchive@dmv.ca.gov to request a digital copy of an archived report. Requests must include the year and manufacturer.

Below is a list of the years and manufacturers for which disengagement reports are available.
