California DMV: Self-Driving Cars Can Now Pick Up Passengers

The California DMV has approved self-driving cars (PDF) to provide free test rides. You probably have to sign a case your killed.

The first pilot program will allow companies to provide passenger service using autonomous vehicles with a trained driver in the vehicle. The second pilot program will allow passenger service using driverless autonomous vehicles that meet the requirements set out by the DMV, including requirements to remotely monitor the status and operation of the vehicle. In keeping with the DMV’s rules, companies participating in the pilots may not charge for the rides until further CPUC approval.
