Booster Seats

Keep your child in a forward-facing child car seat until they outgrow the weight or height limit of the seat. Once your child moves into a booster seat, keep them in it until they are at least 9 years old or have reached the height of 145cm (4'9").

Types of Booster Seats

Booster seats have weight and height limits that vary depending on the make, model and type. Choose a rear-facing child car seat that:

  • Fits securely in your vehicle
  • Is appropriate for your child's weight and height

Once your child is using a booster seat make sure the vehicle seat belt:

  • Fits over the child’s shoulder
  • Lies across the child’s chest and hips


  • Booster seats must be used with a lap and shoulder seat belt
  • Always follow your child car seat instructions and vehicle owner’s manual
