Tesla is rolling out the latest version of its self-driving software, 10.3.1, to members of its beta pool following a rollback on Sunday after anomalies were discovered in the initial rollout of Software Version 10.3.
For months, Tesla has been releasing new versions of the FSD Beta software on a bi-weekly basis, with new software releases coming out every other Friday. On October 22nd, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that FSD Beta 10.3 was being delayed until Sunday due to “regression in some left turns at traffic lights.”
The latest FSD Beta version 10.3 was launched Sunday morning, but many owners were swiftly kicked out after downloading it. Several of them contacted Teslarati to say that they had been added to the Beta program with a 99 Safety Score, only to have their permission revoked later on. “I did the most recent software update, and it deleted my FSD access. My safety score is still 100,” one owner told us. Another said their car was given FSD Beta access on Sunday morning, but the request button reappeared on their navigation screen soon afterward.
According to Musk, the demise of Version 10.3 was deliberate. “Please note, this is to be expected with beta software. It is impossible to test all hardware configs in all conditions with internal QA, hence public beta,” the CEO explained on Twitter.
Regression in some left turns at traffic lights found by internal QA in 10.3. Fix in work, probably releasing tomorrow.

Tesla appears to be conscious of the Beta program’s flaws. Musk tweeted following the release of FSD Beta 9.2 that it was “not great,” but that changes were being rolled out every two weeks, with outcomes that showed a steady increase in the company’s vehicles’ comprehension with each mile driven.
