CA DMV issues autonomous vehicle testing permit to Vietnam’s VinFast

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has issued an Autonomous Vehicle Testing Permit (with a driver) to VinFast (a division of Vingroup). VinFast—a Vietnamese company (earlier post)—is the 57th company to be issued such a testing permit.

Six companies have received a permit for driverless testing (Autox, Baidu, Cruise, NURO, WAYMO and ZOOX) while only one (NURO) has received a permit for deployment.
