Driverless cars won't be allowed on Britain's roads until the cars have passed their test, said a spokesman for the Department of Transport. And in another setback to the rapid introduction of the high-tech vehicles, it was revealed that the cars will not be allowed to apply for their test until they are at least 17 years old. This could delay their introduction until 2031.
Reading motoring magazines, playing driving games, watching Top Gear and buying furry dice and air fresheners is a close as the vehicles will be allowed to come to real motoring until such time as they obtain their licences. Local authorities have voiced concern about pent-up frustration leading to cars stealing themselves, joy-riding and doing do-nuts while uninsured.
