Uber removed its self-driving cars from California streets after state regulators threatened to revoke their registrations.

Hours after Uber announced the service in San Francisco last week, the California DMV said it would take legal action. The company's cars require a special permit for self-driving technology, according to state regulators.

Uber claims that its cars don't require the permit, since the technology still depends on a human driver, despite being advertised as "self-driving."
