The UK Department of Transport announced Wednesday that it has approved the testing of driverless cars on public roads with trials due to get under way by summer, however a qualified driver will be present in vehicles during the trial period.

Testing of driverless cars has already been taking place in the UK, but until now it had been restricted to off-road activities. That’s set to change after a review by the department found there were no legal barriers blocking the move to public roads.
