Under new measures announced today, fleets of driverless cars are expected to be introduced to the UK roads in "less than six months".
The Government plans to adapt road regulations, which requires changes to the Highway Code, to allow companies to start running trials of cars that do not need a human driver.
ITV News Correspondent Ben Chapman spoke to future transport engineer, Tim Edwards, as he was taken for a drive in one of the new satellite controlled vehicles.
"What we need to do now is get these cars onto public roads so they are immersed in the really complicated day-to-day drive that we'll experience," Mr Edwards said.
