Booster seat for 7 year old

Recommended Posts

Hi my daughter is 7 and tall for her age but in the UK she still sits in either a booster seat with a back or one with no back.

 

We are emigrating to WA on Dec 3rd and am wondering whether to ship the booster seat for her? I see that after the age of 7, children can either just have an adult seat belt or a booster but do many people still use a booster after the age of 7?

 

In the UK, they are in them until they are a certain height or aged 12, whichever comes first. Safety is my priority and I'm happy to ship a seat, I just wondered what others do and whether its expected and if there is a certain type of booster? Thanks

It will not have the Australian Safety Standards so would not be legal and would affect insurance if you had an accident.  You cant get the ones with no back now either.
