Tesla launches Canadian Safety Score support page hinting at impending release

support safety score

Earlier today Elon Musk provided an update on the expansion of Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta to Canada, saying he hoped to release it this weekend.

In a good sign that might happen, Tesla has updated their website and added a Canadian version of the Safety Score support page.

UPDATE Feb 26 8:06am PST: Safety Score is now available in Canada, along with the Request FSD Beta button. You can read more here.

If you are not familiar, Tesla used the Safety Score tool to determine who was allowed to download FSD Beta when the program expanded in the U.S. last year.

According to the page, the same five factors will be considered in determining your score – Forward Collision Warnings, Hard Braking, Aggressive Turning, Unsafe Following, and Forced Autopilot Disengagements.

Tesla has also adjusted their formulas to account for the differences between a mile and a kilometer, meaning no discounts on the exchange for Canadians.

For example, the Forward Collision Warnings are per 1,000km, and not 1,609km. The adjustment results in the value being capped at 63.3 per 1,000km, instead of 101.9 per 1,000 miles.

Tesla provides the same information on how to improve your Safety Score, as well as a list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Where will I find my Safety Score?

If Tesla follows the same rollout procedure in Canada as they did in the U.S., Canadian owners with FSD will receive a software update this weekend that adds a “Request Full Self-Driving Beta” button to their cars.

The Safety Score tab will then appear in the mobile app, after which you will have to drive for 7 days and achieve a perfect 100 Safety Score before being allowed to download the software.
