Autonomous Vehicle (AV) Testing and Operation Support

Colorado state agencies must support the testing and operation of AVs. AV usage is authorized if the driving system complies with state and federal laws, or if approved by the Colorado State Patrol and the Colorado Department of Transportation. AVs are motor vehicles equipped with technology that allows vehicle automation to perform one or more driving functions without the direct control of the driver.
