Suitable limousine child restraint

Australian child car seat rules

Sydney Airport Limousines welcomes families with children. We provide modern, clean, approved child car restraints for our VIP child and baby passengers, who enjoy a smooth ride in air-conditioned comfort.

Our approved child restraints are vehicle specific, not swapped between multiple vehicles, and are fitted and checked prior to departure from our base.

We ask parents and caregivers to place their child in the restraint and we check to ensure that all is in order. All drivers have current Working with Children Checks (WWCC).

Australian child car seat rules

Children aged under 7 years must use an approved suitable child restraint when travelling in a vehicle. A child restraint is a forward-facing or rear-facing child car seat (also referred to as a baby car seat or baby capsule), or a booster seat.

To be approved, child restraints must meet Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1754.

The driver is responsible for children aged under 7 years being secured by an approved child restraint suitable for their age and size.

  • Children up to the age of 6 months must use a rear-facing child car seat.
  • Children aged between 6 months and 4 years must use either a rear-facing child car seat or a forward-facing child car seat with an inbuilt harness.
  • Children aged between 4 and 7 years must use a forward‑facing child car seat with an inbuilt harness or an approved booster seat.

Children aged 7 years and over who are too small to use a seatbelt should use an approved booster seat or an anchored safety harness. The suggested minimum height for using a seatbelt is 145cm or taller.
