Google, known more for its search engine and e-mail service, has bagged the first licence in the US to test self-driving cars along busy public roads in Nevada.

Officials of the Department of Motor Vehicles in Nevada, California, said they have issued Google the nation’s first licence to test an autonomous vehicle that does not need a driver on its public streets.

Nevada issued a special licence after demonstrations on state freeways, state highways, in Carson City neighbourhoods and on Las Vegas’ landmark Las Vegas Strip, the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles said.
