Autonomous Vehicle Testing Program

The Autonomous Illinois Testing Program (Program) encourages the partnership between the State and other entities developing connected autonomous vehicle (CAV) technology and infrastructure. The Program facilitates legal testing and programs on public roads and highways, and requires that a licensed driver remains behind the wheel. The Illinois Department of Transportation will create a registration system for entities wishing to conduct safe pilots or tests of connected and autonomous vehicles and will file a report with the governor on the status of the Program each December 31 and June 30 until the program ends.

For more information, see the State of Illinois CAVs Overview report.
