Five Step Test

Children aged between 7 and 16 years are required to use a booster seat or adult seat belt when travelling in a vehicle. An adult lap sash seatbelt is designed for people of a minimum height of 145 cms and over (the average age children reach this height is between 10 to 12 years old).

The safest option for your child will depend on your child’s height – do the five step test to find out.
