Common theory questions

How should a 4-year-old child sit in a car?

Children should sit in a booster seat or on a booster cushion from the age of 4 until they are 135 centimetres.

Booster seat and booster cushion

  • A booster seat or booster cushion must never be placed in a seat with frontal airbag protection.
  • If the child is seated in a place without a headrest, a booster seat is better than a booster cushion.
  • Secure the booster seat or booster cushion with a car's seat belt.
  • The safest position is in the back seat.

Children over the age of 3 no longer need to use a child seat, booster seat or booster cushion when they are 135 centimetres or taller.

Even if a child no longer needs to use a child safety device, the child must never sit in front of an activated airbag until he or she is 140 centimetres or taller.
