Dual Insurance Policy for Self-Driving Cars, Goverment Revealed in Norwich, Norfolk

Posted 14/02/2017

A dual insurance policy will be soon be required for self-driving cars, the Department for Transport have announced.

This means that a single policy will be brought in to cover both when the car is being driven by the driver, as well as when it is on auto-pilot mode. This is note only to reduce confusion as to who is responsible for claim, but also cut down waiting times for claims to be paid out.

Reports of recent accidents following driverless car testing carried out by Google has raised concerns among consumers. However, with Japanese car manufacturer, Nissan, carrying out tests on their potential range of driverless cars next week, it is expected that they will hit the UK by 2020.

The Government have revealed that they are keen to push this latest development in motoring technology however, with them estimating it could be worth around £900billion internationally by 2025.
