Connected automated vehicles which are widely known as CAVs are the vehicles which are driven by itself without a human intervention. They are connected in a sense that they are fitted in to sensors that can communicate with either internet of things sensors that might be embedded on the infrastructure or speak to other digital systems in other vehicles or other remote systems. In future this is going to be a revolution for a driverless mode of transport. Many countries are competing in the race of getting a CAV to their country. In this race United Kingdom is one of the biggest competitors to bring a CAV in to a reality. Policy makers and technology experts are working hand in hand to get CAVs as soon as possible. In this article, in the first chapter we will be discussing about the overview of the legal framework of self-driven cars in the UK, in the second chapter, we will be discussing the proposals the law commissions. In the third chapter we will do a brief analysis of the proposals, its Advantages and disadvantages. In the fourth chapter I would like to talk about the future of CAVs in UK. In the last chapter I would like to conclude by giving some observations and suggestions for the CAVs in UK. The aim of the article is to analyse the regulatory framework given to CAVs in UK and provide suggestions to loopholes present in the proposals of the law commission in UK.
