Tesla FSD Beta 10.3 Releasing Oct. 22 for Those with 99/100 Safety Scores: Musk

CleanShot 2021 10 14 at 21 00 42

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Thursday evening the release date for Full Self-Driving beta 10.3, to those with Safety Scores of 99/100.

FSD beta 10.3 will hit more Tesla owners on Friday, October 22 (likely early Saturday, October 23), again with releases to be available likely at midnight or just past.

It was just this past weekend Tesla released FSD beta 10.2 to those with perfect 100 Safety Scores over 100 miles, resulting in about 1,000 extra testers of the beta software.

Previously, FSD beta was only available to a limited number of private testers picked by Tesla. But the expansion marks the first time regular buyers of the company’s $10,000 USD FSD option for Autopilot, can try out the beta, only if they are a safe driver.

When asked if Tesla could post notes on the changes as well, Musk replied, “technical details will be in the release notes.”

Tesla calculates Safety Scores using metrics from its insurance calculator, or five safety factors:

  • Forward Collision Warnings per 1,000 Miles
  • Hard Braking
  • Aggressive Turning
  • Unsafe Following
  • Forced Autopilot Disengagement

It’s become challenging for some Tesla owners to maintain high scores of a perfect 100, or even 99, but ultimately, Tesla is looking for safe drivers to test its FSD beta software. If you have a Safety Score of 99, good luck as you head into next Friday, as you try to maintain or improve your score.
