If you have received a strike (or several) on your Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta driving record for not paying attention while using the software, your record will soon be cleared.

When exactly that will be is still up in the air, but CEO Elon Musk talked about resetting the strike counter to zero twice over the weekend.

The first time Musk talked about the great reset was on Sunday morning, replying to @AGiovanna_1 that it was “coming,” without giving a definitive timeline.

Later in the day Musk replied to another Twitter user, @jonbbc, saying that it would be coming “hopefully, this week.” A reset could coincide with the release of FSD Beta 10.69.1, which is supposed to happen later today.

FSD Beta Strike Counter

Tesla first implemented the FSD Beta strikeout counter last year, limiting testers to three strikeouts before their access to the testing program would be revoked. A driver could receive a strikeout for distracted driving, with common reasons for receiving one being not paying attention to the road by looking at your phone or looking at the in-car display for too long.

At first owners were notified of the strikeouts by email, but the email was confusing as it didn’t provide clarity on exactly how many they had accumulated, only saying they would be kicked out after receiving three.

Tesla then simplified things by adding an in-car message that popped up notifying drivers when they had received one, and how many strikeouts they had left before FSD Beta would no longer work.

The limit was originally set to three strikeouts before your access was revoked, but Tesla increased the limit to five earlier this year.
