Autonomous technology manufacturers must get a permit to test their technology on public roads. We are currently accepting applications to test autonomous vehicles either with or without a human in the driver seat.
Testing Autonomous Vehicles with a Driver
The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) started allowing autonomous vehicle manufacturers to test their vehicles with a driver in 2014 under the Autonomous Vehicle Tester Program.
Testing Autonomous Vehicles without a Driver
DMV established the Autonomous Vehicle Driverless Tester Program in 2018 to allow manufacturers to test autonomous vehicles without a driver.
