Tencent Monday received a government permit to test its self-driving car on certain public roads in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen.

The Shenzhen Transport Bureau issued a license plate for a self-driving car of the Internet giant.

Han Hao, an official with the bureau, said the agency would soon announce the testing roads and time. A driver and a safety personnel should be in the car during the tests.

Multiple government agencies in Shenzhen have formed a working group to manage and promote self-driving technology.

Earlier several cities in China, including Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing, issued self-driving car licenses after regulations governing road testing of unmanned vehicles went into effect.
