Nevada, the first state to put in place rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles last February, has now moved on to the next step, approving the first testing license under the new rules, issued to Google.

Under the new laws, the self-driving car will be fitted with a special red license plate featuring an infinity symbol for easy recognition.

However, the vehicles require two passengers at all times, and the areas in which they can be driven is tightly regulated for the moment.
