Support for Autonomous Vehicle (AV) Testing and Operation

Archived: 04/01/2018

Arizona state agencies must support the testing and operation of AVs on public roads. Universities are encouraged to implement pilot programs for AVs. An employee, contractor, or other authorized person that is licensed to operate a motor vehicle in the United States, must monitor and operate the vehicles. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) may implement additional rules necessary to support AVs. Arizona formed the Self-Driving Vehicle Oversight Committee to advise ADOT and facilitate the advancement of AV technology. (Reference Executive Order 2015-09, 2015)
