After passing legislation last year allowing driverless cars to operate legally on their roads, Nevada has reached another impressive milestone in the legalization and adoption of cars without drivers. The state just issued the first license to such a vehicle.
The Las Vegas Sun reported that the state's Department of Motor Vehicles issued what they are calling test licenses to one of Google's autonomous vehicles. While allowing the vehicles to be tested and operated on their streets, state laws still require someone to be behind the wheel at all times.
Google is currently testing a fleet of eight such vehicles which include six priuses like the one seen above, an Audi TT, and a Lexus RX450h. The license plates will be specially made to signify the autonomous vehicle and will be red with an infinity symbol on the left side.
