Understand The Law

Drivers now face a fixed £30 penalty or fine of up to £500 if they fail to comply with regulations on child seats in cars.

The law requires ALL children to be carried in child restraints that are appropriate for their size. It covers children less than 12 years old, but only if they are less than 135cm in height. If a child is taller than 135cm they are allowed to use an adult seat belt, regardless of their age.

Before you buy a child car seat, make sure you take a careful look at our guide to Child Seat Law.

Halfords Can Help You to Choose the Right Child Seat

Before you buy a child car seat, make sure you take a look at our Child Seat Buyer's Guide.

Halfords in-store colleagues can provide advice and fitting guidance to every customer who purchases a child car seat from us. Visit your local store where a member of staff will be happy to help after understanding your needs and requirements.

We Fit Child Seats

When you visit your local store, a fully trained and qualified member of staff will be able to help you to choose the best child seat for your needs, according to the size of your child and the vehicle which the seat will go into.

When we fit your new child seat we will check the seat in your vehicle to confirm it is suitable for both the car and the child. We will then demonstrate the fitting and show you how to fit the seat yourself to ensure you fully understand how it works. Once you are comfortable fitting the seat, we will then take you through our 16-Point fitting checklist to ensure you understand what aspects of the fit to look out for in the future.

Furthermore, even after you drive away, we are always happy to help you with any part of the fitting or with the features of your new child car seat as part of our comprehensive after sales service.

Pre-booking may be required. Please contact your local store for details.

Fitting subject to vehicle inspection.
