The Bureau of Highway Safety has partner locations around the State of Maine where people can make an appointment with a certified car seat technician for car seat installation assistance, education, and guidance.

Services that Technicians may provide include, but are not limited to, inspecting your car seat to see if you have it installed correctly, providing education when to transition to another car seat type, re-inspecting your car seat when you have moved it to another vehicle, or car seat placement in a vehicle where all the seats need to be occupied.

Please call for an appointment, ask to speak with the Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician.

There may be a waiting list so please plan ahead.
