Tesla has resumed distributing FSD Beta to the general public. The company put it on pause because of the NHTSA, which expressed concerns about some aspects of its work. Tesla has released a new feature update correcting the agency's concerns.
Tesla has resumed the rollout of the Full Self-Driving (FSD) Beta to new testers who want it. The rollout was suspended for several months due to concerns from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In February, Tesla was due to fix it via an over-the-air (OTA) update for over 362,000 vehicles with FSD Beta installed. The NHTSA stated that, under certain conditions, the software “could potentially infringe upon local traffic laws or customs, which could increase the risk of a collision if the driver does not intervene.” Tesla also had to pause software rollouts for new testers.
It is worth noting that NHTSA's concerns have been resolved with the release of FSD Beta V11.3.2. It was sent out to existing testers in March. However, the company did not allow new members to join the program. On Monday night, with the release of 2023.12.10, which included FSD Beta V11.3.6, new testers were able to subscribe to FSD Beta.
