In England in 1860 Thomas Rickett received an order for a steam-powered motor vehicle it became the first vehicle to be sold and advertised and also completed a 146 mile trip in Scotland.

A series of acts of Parliament (the Red Flag Acts) were passed starting in 1865 which restricted the practicality of owning a motor vehicle (1) all vehicles must carry 3 people (2) speed restriction of 4 mph (6.4 kph) on open roads and 2 mph (3.2 kph) in built up areas (3) a person carrying a red flag must walk in front of the vehicle. The acts were repealed in 1896 and the speed limit was raised to 14 mph (22 kph).

After initially importing cars and building them under licence a number of entrepreneurial inventors and engineers started to build up a native manufacturing capability across the UK.
