Detail of outcome

Government response to a consultation on proposals to facilitate advanced driver assistance systems and automated vehicle technologies.

In July 2016 the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles consulted on proposals relating to:

  • the government’s approach to regulatory reform with regard to new advanced driver assistance systems and automated vehicle technologies
  • creating a compulsory motor insurance framework fit for the arrival of automated vehicles
  • amending the regulatory framework for driving, including the Highway Code and construction and use regulations to facilitate the arrival of near to market advanced driver assistance systems

This consultation response outlines the government’s response to feedback from business and the public across the UK and, and along with the associated impact assessment, details the government’s next steps for each of the proposals on which we consulted.
