    CARSON CITY — Nevadans will soon see driverless cars being tested on streets and highways.

    Google received the first license Monday from the state Department of Motor Vehicles to test the autonomous vehicles. It is believed to be the first such license issued in the country.

    What we're really headed towards is a future where people never really learn to drive and completely rely on technology to do it for them.
