Yes. As the driver, it's your legal responsibility to ensure the child is safe, secure and in a suitable seat. Child seats are mandatory for all children until they are 12-year-old or 135cm in height. The Honest John Child Seat Chooser tool makes it easy to see which child seats are suitable for your car: kit.honestjohn.co.uk/car-seat-chooser
