The SAIC Innovation Center in Silicon Valley, which in 2015 was established as a subsidiary of China’s state-owned automaker SAIC Motor, has received a permit to test its autonomous vehicles on the roads in California.

SAIC Motor is the 35th organization to receive a permit from the California Department of Motor Vehicles to test its autonomous vehicles in the state.  

The permit covers two vehicles and one driver, according to an email that was sent to CNBC from a DMV spokesman.

Earlier this year, SAIC said its self-driving cars have compiled more than 12,000 miles each in road tests, but it did not say how many self-driving vehicles were in its fleet.
