What height is need for a child to use a normal seat belt with out using a car seat? Just my daughter has just turned 6 and is quiet tall and has outgrown her car seat. I know they say the age of 7 but wasn’t to sure about height.

  • You can always check with Kidsafe who will be able to fit her properly anyway too.

  • yeah you could just google it. would be info everywhere. it does go by height if height is acheived before age.

  • Depending on your state, check our your road authority website (Vic Roads etc). They should have guidelines.

  • It think it differs fromstate to state. My son is supper short for his age while he has friends that are tall and heavy enough to be out of it at 7 years old he is not. He will be at least nine or ten till he is out of it.

  • Check out the child safety organisation in your state. I had always thought it was age only.
