Tesla sent the Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta software to more owners in Canada yesterday, lowering the requirements to download the software to those with a Safety Score 98.

The initial wave started in the early afternoon, but it was brief with not many people receiving the 2022.4.5.20 software update.

Elon Musk tweeted soon after that it would be sent to “99”ers later that day, and as promised the update started appearing just after 10:00pm PST.


Drive Tesla received dozens of reports from owners with both 100 and 99 Safety Score receiving the update.

Surprisingly we also received several from owners with a score of 98, lower than what Musk promised and the same level that Tesla last used to send the update to owners in the US.



Unfortunately it was not good news for all Tesla FSD owners in Canada, as there are still many without the beta, even those with a perfect 100 Safety Score.

As we have mentioned before, only Tesla knows the full set of criteria it uses to deploy the software, so the best advice we can give is to do your best to keep your Safety Score as high as possible and hopefully it arrives soon.

Let us know in the comments below if you have received FSD Beta with a Safety Score lower than 98.

Editor’s note: The article was updated to remove a reference to a 97 Safety Score receiving the update as that was proven false.
