Currently being updated and details about that country regulations will be available shortly…

Legislative basis for CCAM testing

Legal basis for testing:

The possibility of getting an exemption for testing with automated vehicles is defined in the Art. 59/1. of the Royal Decree of 1 December 1975, which contains general regulations on the police of road traffic and the use of public roads.

Contact information:

Ministry of Transport: (Which is the responsible authority issuing the test permit).

The Belgium government doesn’t define a specific legislation with requirements to obtain a testing permit. The exemption from traffic code introduced by Royal Decree of 18/03/2018 grants the possibility to exempt form the traffic rules for testing automated vehicles.
