UK government launches driverless car review
Before the review is published during the summer of 2017, the government will introduce a code of practice this spring to allow the testing of driverless cars to go ahead. 
 
The review is expected to highlight road regulations and car maintenance to accommodate driverless cars on UK roads. 
 
It will also include a rewrite of the Highway Code, various adjustments to MOT guidelines and how to ensure the safety of drivers and pedestrians. 
 
Self-drive pods are expected to be tested in Milton Keynes and Coventry. 
 
The Department for Transport acknowledged that driverless cars on UK roads could be some way off and that current tests of the technology would need to have a qualified test driver to supervise the vehicle. 
 
Transport minister, Claire Perry said: “Driverless vehicles technology has the potential to be a real game-change on the UK’s roads, altering the face of motoring in the most fundamental ways and delivering major benefits for road safety, social inclusion, emissions and congestion.”
 
The government announced that it would invest £19 million to launch four driverless car schemes in the UK. 
 
Director of the RAC Foundation, Professor Stephen Glaister said: “These trials are not just about harnessing technology to make our travelling lives easier and safer, they also involve getting the regulation right.”
 
According to BBC News, the U.S.A was the first country in the world to introduce legislation to permit testing of driverless vehicles.
