Google Bots Take the Wheel in Nevada—After Hitting the DMV

by Tim Fernholz

May 11, 2012

Breslow, complying with state laws (lobbied for by Google) that permit driverless vehicles on the road, designed the red license plate with an infinity sign on it. While Google was first in line to road test its vehicles, other companies that want to test autonomous vehicles are expected to apply for the permit.

Interested in heading for Las Vegas to snag a driverless vehicle of your own? The technology isn’t quite there yet, but Nevada is already planning ahead, at least according to the DMV’s website: "When autonomous vehicles are eventually made available for public use, motorists will be required to obtain a special driver license endorsement and the DMV will issue green license plates for the vehicles."
