Using a child car seat is a legal requirement in the UK. Rules can be confusing, so we’ve pulled together everything you need to know so you don’t get pulled over and fined.

Rear-Facing Seats

From birth until age 2 or until your child reaches the upper weight limit of their rear-facing convertible seat. (For babies up to 13 kg)

Forward – Facing Seats

Once your child reaches the upper weight or height limit of their rear-facing convertible seat. It is safest to keep your child in a forward-facing seat with a harness until they reach the maximum weight limit 9 – 18kg or height restriction of their seat.

Forward – booster seats

Suitable for children 15kg and up (approximately 4 years old)

Forward – booster cushion

Suitable for children 22 kg and up (approximately 6 – 12 years old)

Important to remember

Car seats are most effective when installed properly. Make sure you follow the installation instructions correctly and ensure your child is using the correct car seat for their weight and height. Do not let children under the age of 13 sit in the front passenger seat of the vehicle.
