How to use Valet Mode on Model Y

Starting Valet Mode

With Tesla Model Y in Park, touch the driver profile icon
on the top of the touchscreen, then touch Valet Mode.
The first time you enter Valet mode, you will be
prompted to create a 4-digit PIN that you will use to
cancel Valet mode.
When Valet mode is active, the touchscreen displays the
word Valet above the driving speed and the Valet mode
driver profile displays on the touchscreen.
You can also use the mobile app to start and cancel
Valet mode (provided Model Y is in Park). When using
the mobile app, you do not need to enter a PIN because
you are already required to log into the app using your
Tesla Account credentials.
NOTE: If the PIN to Drive setting is enabled,
you must enter the driving PIN
before you can define or enter a Valet PIN. Once in Valet
mode, Model Y can be driven without the valet needing
to enter the driving PIN.
NOTE: The PIN to Drive setting is not available when
Valet mode is active.
If you forget your valet PIN, reset it from inside Model Y
by entering your Tesla Account credentials (which also
cancels Valet mode). You can also reset your PIN using
the mobile app.
