The law allows people to operate a driverless car for testing purposes, provided that a licensed driver is behind the wheel to take control if necessary. The law instructs the Department of Motor Vehicles to adopt regulations to oversee the licensing and testing of driverless cars for the public.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin joined Brown at the event.

“Self-driving cars can transform lives and communities — providing transportation to those not currently served, increasing safety on the road, reducing or eliminating congestion, and turning parking into parkland,” Brin said.
