Call for Evidence

Self-driving vehicles

The Transport Select Committee is scrutinising the development and deployment of self-driving vehicles for use on the roads (also known as connected and autonomous vehicles). We are particularly interested in receiving written evidence that addresses: 

  • likely uses, including private cars, public transport and commercial vehicles;
  • progress of research and trials in the UK and abroad;
  • potential implications for infrastructure, both physical and digital;
  • the regulatory framework, including legal status and approval and authorisation processes;
  • safety and perceptions of safety, including the relationship with other road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and conventionally driven vehicles;
  • the role of Government and other responsible bodies, such as National Highways and local authorities; and potential effects on patterns of car ownership, vehicle taxation and decarbonisation in the car market.


This call for written evidence has now closed.
