Legal basis for testing:

Law supplementing Government Emergency Ordinance no. 195/2002 on traffic on public roads (currently under approval by the Parliament so it is not in effect)

Contact information: Romanian Automotive Register (responsible authority issuing the test permit)

The legislation aims to:

– Create the legal premises for the authorization for the testing of vehicles equipped with an automated driving system, for the purpose of testing the vehicles in question, on certain routes established in advance by the traffic police.

– The definition of the automated driving system as a function of a motor vehicle through which its lateral and longitudinal movements are performed in real time, road monitoring, response to road traffic events, as well as planning and signaling of maneuvers.

– The obligation of the legal person holding the authorization issued for the testing of vehicles equipped with an automated driving system, to designate a person for the supervision of driving.

– Regulate the responsibility for the violation of the traffic rules of the legal person holding the authorization issued in the case of testing the vehicles provided with an automated driving system, unless the control of the vehicle is taken over by the person designated for the supervision of the driving of the vehicle.
