Self-driving vehicles are vehicles that can safely and lawfully drive themselves.
In a self-driving vehicle, it is safe in at least some circumstances for the driver to delegate control of the vehicle to the self-driving function and no longer monitor the road.
Driving a self-driving vehicle
A new section of The Highway Code clarifies driver responsibilities and rules on the use of self-driving vehicles.
You must insure your self-driving vehicle as self-driving.
List of self-driving vehicles
The Secretary of State for Transport will publish a list of vehicles deemed as self-driving. The list of self-driving vehicles will be published on this page.
At present, there are no self-driving vehicles listed for use in Great Britain.
Finding out if a vehicle has self-driving functions
The list of self-driving vehicles only records vehicle model or variant to help determine if individual vehicles should be registered as self-driving on the DVLA database.
At present, there are no self-driving vehicles listed for use in Great Britain. This information is therefore not yet available on DVLA’s vehicle checker.
If a vehicle has been registered as self-driving, then you must understand how to use the vehicle’s functions and identify the ones that are capable of self-driving before engaging them.
A self-driving vehicle may contain driver assistance features, such as lane tracking, cruise control or automatic start-stop, that are not self-driving.
