Using a child car seat or booster seat ?

Children must normally use a child car seat until they're 12 years old or 135cm tall.

Which child car seat to use depends on the child’s weight.

Types of child car seat :

  • Rear-facing baby seats -  Babies up to 13kg
  • Forward or rear-facing baby seats -  Children from 9 to 18kg
  • Forward-facing child car seats (booster seats) -  Children from 15 to 25kg
  • Booster cushions - Children over 22kg

Only EU-approved child car seats can be used in the UK. These have a label showing a capital ‘E’ in a circle.

Fitting a child car seat :

  • only use a child car seat with a seat belt that has a diagonal strap - unless it’s specifically designed for use with a lap seat belt
  • deactivate any front airbags before fitting a rear-facing baby seat in a front seat
  • not fit a child car seat in side-facing seats


Minibuses :

  • Minibus drivers and companies don’t have to provide child car seats. You must provide your own if you want to make sure a child has one.

Children with disabilities :

The same rules apply for children with disabilities unless a doctor says they're exempt on medical grounds. They can also use a disabled person's seat belt or child restraint designed for their needs.

 Children 3 and older must :

  • use a child car seat if there’s one available in a minibus
  • use an adult seat belt if child seats are not fitted or are unsuitable

!!! All children must travel in rear seats (ie any seats behind the driver) if a child car seat or an adult seat belt isn’t fitted !!!
