[THE INVESTOR] Autonomous vehicle testing will be allowed on all roads in the South Korea from November, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced on Sept. 29.

This follows the revised enforcement decree on Motor Vehicle Management Act allowing autonomous vehicles to be tested on all roads.

Under the revision, autonomous vehicles can be tested on all roads, with the exception of areas singled out by the authorities.

At present, only 375 kilometers of roads in Daegu, Sejong and other selected areas are open to autonomous vehicles.
