The law in New Zealand requires you to have all children under 5 years of age restrained in a child car restraint for every ride.
The restraint must be a child restraint appropriate for the height and weight of the child, the vehicle safety belt on its own is not enough. Read more about car safety and which type of car seat restraint is best for your child.
Children 5-7 years old must use a child restraint if there is one appropriate for their height and weight in the vehicle, otherwise they must use the vehicle safety belt. For children 8-14 years old you must use a safety belt if available, children must travel in the back seat.
It is strongly recommended that to keep babies and toddlers safe, they travel rear-facing until 2 years of age. Older children should stay in their forward-facing child restraint or booster seat until they outgrow it.
Our car seat service staff are trained child restraint technicians which means they have the knowledge to provide the best advice on the installation and use of child restraints.
