New Car Seat Rules

If you have a child, you should check the new car seat rules which have come into force.

A car seat must be suitable for a child’s weight and age.

All children and babies aged 15 months or under must travel in a rear-facing (or ‘i-Size’) car seat. Which car seat your child uses will depend on how tall they are.

Children must normally use a child car seat until they’re 12 years old or 135cm tall, whichever comes first.

Child’s weight Car seat
9kg to 15kg Forward or rear-facing baby seat
15kg to 18kg Booster seat, forward or rear-facing baby seat
18kg to 22kg Booster seat
Over 22kg Booster seat or booster cushion

Check the Gov.UK website for full child seat rules and more details.
