Remote Driving – the Future becoming Reality?
In February 2023, the Law Commission set out its advice to the UK Government on remote driving (the "Report"). The Report considers the current law surrounding situations where a person outside of a vehicle uses wireless connectivity to control a vehicle on a public road (or "remote driving" for the purposes of this briefing).
This follows on from a joint report published in January 2022 by the Law Commission and the Scottish Law Commission. This is discussed in our earlier briefing which is available here.
