Apple’s self-driving car program detailed in DMV training doc

Imagine if everyone could get around easily and safely, without tired, drunk or distracted driving

More tidbits about Apple’s rumored self-driving car program are starting to emerge.

Last week, Apple was granted a permit by the California Department of Motor Vehicles to officially test autonomous driving technology — at the time the clearest sign yet that Apple was interested in the burgeoning field.

Now some other details are coming to light, according to a report Friday from Business Insider, which obtained documents related to the program from the DMV.

The document is meant to train the human drivers staffing the autonomous car tests. Some of the tidbits: Apple drivers must pass seven tests in order to complete the training program. They include tests on high-speed driving, sudden braking and tight U-turns. The drivers have two practice runs and three trials to pass each, according to Business Insider.
