Tesla will open controversial FSD beta software to owners with a good driving record

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said the company will use personal driving data to determine whether owners who have paid for its controversial Full Self-Driving software can access the latest beta version that promises more automated driving functions.
Musk tweeted late Thursday night that the FSD Beta v10.0.1 software update, which has already been pushed out to a group of select owners, will become more widely available starting September 24.
Owners who have paid for FSD, which currently costs $10,000, will be offered access to the beta software through a beta request button. Drivers who select the beta software will be asked for permission to access their driving behavior using Teslas insurance calculator, Musk wrote in a tweet.
If driving behavior is good for seven days, beta access will be granted, Musk wrote.
Tesla vehicles come standard with a driver assistance system branded as Autopilot. For an additional $10,000, owners can buy full self-driving, or FSD software that Musk has repeatedly promised will one day deliver full autonomous driving capabilities.

Beta button will request permission to assess driving behavior using Tesla insurance calculator. If driving behavior is good for 7 days, beta access will be granted.
