This is regulated individually by each state/country, so you should check with the driving manual or on the dmv website of the state/country where you are driving. Typically, there is a weight limit for the child, under which they need to be in a car seat. Above that weight, a seat-belt is fine. 80 lbs is about the norm. Some states have different rules for children under 45 lbs.

Your child needs to be at least 8 or 9.

In the UK, your child must use a car seat until they are 12 years old or 135cm tall (whichever comes first).
