    My 5 and 7 yr old pass the test in the jeep wrangler sport. (Weird back seats)

    My 7 yr old cant pass in most vehicles and will be in a booster for it looks like years.

    My 5 yr old can pass in about 50-70% of vehicles we come across. (Very very tall).

    Yep it's a legit test I got mine from qld department of roads I just cropped the photo.

    Dd is 7, 130cm and about 28kg. I hadn't heard about the 145cm rule which explains why she doesn't pass the test yet.

    My dd1 is almost 7 and been out of a booster for a couple of months.

    He + Me = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (May 2014)

    My DD is 9 tomorrow and she's still in a booster. I think she's about 125cm and 19kg.

    I can't remember the ages they came out of their seats but my three eldest do not use boosters. My 12 year old and 9 year old especially would look ridiculous in a booster seat 😳

    However, my children are big for their ages - 12 year old DD is almost as tall as me and is nearing 50kgs, 9 year old DS weighs about 45kgs and is almost as tall as the 12 year old and DD2 who will be 8 next month already weighs 33kgs and is also quite tall .. So they all pass the test.

    DS2 and 3 are both still in baby seats as they are only 5 and 2. DS2 seems to be my only lanky/small child so he may be in the booster for longer than his siblings.

    That's good to know that test. DD has long legs so is starting to find the booster uncomfortable across the back of her legs. She's only 6 (125cm/24kg) so I'll still be keeping her in it until at least 7 or 8. This gives me a better guide to when she'll actually be safe out of it though.

    He + Me = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (May 2014)
