Child Restraints, Seats and Capsules

Victorian taxi cabs and Drivers are not able to supply child restraints, seats or capsules for your trip.

You should use a restraint, seat, or capsule when able to provide your own. All taxi cabs provide an anchor bolt or fitting for one restraint, seat or capsule.

If it is not convenient for you to provide your own restraint, seat or capsule, during trips to the airport or to a shopping centre for example, there are still options suitable for you:

Children under 12 months do not have to use a child restraint, seat or capsule in a taxi providing

  • your child travels in the back seat
  • your child is placed on the lap of an adult
  • your child is not placed under the seat belt

Children over 12 months do not have to use a child restraint, seat or capsule in a taxi providing

  • your child travels in the back seat
  • your child is secured with their own seatbelt

    Further information regarding transporting children in taxi cabs can be found at the VicRoads website.
