Uber Child Seat Policy

Many families use the Uber app in their daily lives, whether it’s ferrying the kids around to after-school activities or helping an elderly parent come and meet you for dinner.

However, there are some things to consider when it comes to using Uber with kids. Here’s what you need to know about using Uber with your children in the UK.

Ground rules

When it comes to requesting rides, our guidelines state that the Uber age limit is 18, meaning children are not allowed to have Uber accounts. If you’re using your Uber account or the Uber family profile for your children to request a ride, they must still be accompanied by an adult to be allowed to ride. As such, drivers may also ask for ID verification to check a rider’s age if they think it is necessary. If drivers have concerns about an unaccompanied rider, we advise them to contact 101 or if they feel there is immediate danger to call 999.

Uber car seats

Child and baby seats in vehicles on the Uber app in the UK aren’t common, so it’s always safest to assume you will need to bring one if you’re riding with a child. 

If you are planning on riding with small children, then you should bring a child seat or baby seat for them. If you don’t have the correct child car seat, children can travel without one – but only if they travel on a rear seat, and wear an adult seat belt if they’re 3 or older.


Children under 15 months must ride in a rear-facing baby seat, which must be fitted in the backseat if there is an active airbag in the passenger seat. There are also several different types of seats for children of different ages and weight, which you can find more information on here.

Remember, not all car seats fit all cars, so drivers can still decline the ride if you don’t have the appropriate car seat or if they aren’t comfortable with having you install one in their car.

In South Africa, children under the age of 3 must be secured in a child seat in cars according to the law. Children between the ages of 3 and 14 must ride in the backseat and be secured with an adult seatbelt – although best practice recommends booster seats for children under 1.5 meters.
