    Default How old was yours child when stopping child seat?

    I know that it's over 7 if they pass the sitting solo safety test. But was wondering how old was your child when they didn't use a child seat (booster) I still have dd in a maxi rider as a booster. She was 7 in June last I checked a month ago she didn't pass the test.

    My oldest is 8 1/2 and she passes the test in my parent's car but not ours so she is still in a booster in our car.

    I've never heard of this test. I don't pass on of those, maybe I need a booster too! Lol

    I thought they had to be over 145cm? That's what vicroads site says. Does the test override that?

    When ds#1 turned 7. And the seatbelt was on his shoulder not his neck. He's mighty tall.

    Ive never heard of the test, but yes he would pass all of those at almost 10yrs old.

    The other 2 will be in seats/ boosters for a long time yet. Trouble makers!

    145cm is around the height they can usually pass the test but it will vary from car to car. We drive an SUV, with deep seats. My parents drive a small hatchback with shallow seats. DD has been fine in my parents car for about 6 months, but she has at least a year to go in ours.

    My oldest is about 125cm. The seat belt sits across her neck without a booster in our car. I don't see the point in risking decapitation from a seat belt in an accident when I can keep her in a booster and have the seatbelt sit across her shoulder.

    DD1 was passed by kids safe so that was fine for me.
