The child restraint check program is now closed for the 2020/21 financial year
Current vouchers expired on 25 June 2021 – no extensions can be offered.
Due to current public health orders we will restart the child restraint program when restrictions are eased.
City of Sydney residents
We are pleased to offer free child restraint checks and installations to local residents.
We provide vouchers for use at 1 of 3 Roads and Maritime Services approved restraint checking stations. You can watch the installation process and learn how to adjust shoulder straps to appropriate heights and find out when a child is ready to move to a bigger seat.
Vouchers will cover the cost of the check or installation. Any parts or accessories will be at your expense.
Australian law requires children travelling in cars to be secured in approved restraints, which means children:
- younger than 6 months must be secured in a rear-facing restraint
- 6 months to 4 years must be secured in a rear or forward-facing restraint
- 4 to 7 years must be secured in a forward-facing restraint or booster seat
- younger than 4 years must travel in the back seat of a vehicle with 2 or more rows.
