Fully self-driving vehicles could be on UK roads by 2025 under new government plans backed by a £100m investment.

New laws are planned to speed up the rollout, with £34m of safety research to feed into developing the legislation.

Vehicles that can drive themselves only on motorways could even be on sale within the next year, the government said, but people would still need a licence to use them on different types of roads.

Others that are completely autonomous, and could be used for deliveries for example, wouldn’t need a licence and could be up and running in three years’ time if the government’s vision is realized.
