Up to about 2000 people

Previously, Tesla launched beta testing of the de facto Full Self-Driving autopilot. Few gained access to this mode, but Elon Musk recently announced that Tesla will expand the program to about 2,000 people, whereas previously there were about 1,000

Tesla has weaned off drivers who had poor road control. But at the same time, the Full Self-Driving program has doubled.

Despite the fact that this clearly indicates the success of testing, Musk noted that some owners of Tesla cars were denied access to autopilot. 

The FSD beta has now expanded to ~ 2000 owners, and we’ve also canceled the beta for those drivers who didn’t pay enough attention to the road. To date, there are no accidents 

While Full Self-Driving is indeed capable of self-driving under most normal conditions, Tesla still requires drivers to keep their hands on the steering wheel. Of course, it is unlikely that many resisted the temptation to try to drive in a car without touching the steering wheel at all, but, apparently, the most persistent offenders were just removed from the testing program.
