If you have been maintaining your Safety Score with the hopes of getting in to the Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta program, it looks like your patience will soon be rewarded.
Elon Musk announced this morning on Twitter that the beta program will be expanding to all owners that have a Safety Score above 80 after the release of the next version, 10.69.2.1.
According to Musk, this incremental update will go out “in a few days,” adding that it will have “additional polish” compared to 10.69.2 which was deployed last week.
Musk also gave a tentative release date for the next update after that, 10.69.3, which he said should arrive “shortly after AI Day.”
AI Day is set to take place in Palo Alto on September 30, later than originally planned in order to be able to hopefully show a demo of the Tesla Bot.

It has been several months since Tesla last added a wave of new testers based on their Safety Score.
FSD Beta was originally provided to those who had achieved a perfect 100 Safety Score over more than 7 days and more than 100 miles (160km) of driving.
Safety Score is used to determine how safe of a driver you are by analyzing five driving metrics:
- Forward Collision Warnings
- Hard Braking
- Aggressive Turning
- Unsafe Following
- Forced Autopilot Disengagements
If you have been having trouble maintaining a high enough Safety Score, here are some tips on what you can do to improve.
