I am going out later today with my OH and my 2(adult) grandchildren and have been asked to give somebody a lift on return, however my car has only 2 rear seat belts and I have said no. Does anybody know legally where you would stand, I have googled this and all I can find is 'passengers must wear seat belts if they are fitted', which doesn't really answer the question - would it be illegal

Your V5 form declares how many seats your car has. To be declared as a "seat" it must have a seatbelt. To answer your question straight yes it is illegal and also might invalidate your insurance if anything should happen (off course we pray nothing would).

'passengers must wear seat belts if they are fitted' pretty simple really :)

When you say your car only has 2 rear seat belts do you mean it only has 2 rear seats? Surely it's only a 4 seater car and therefore you could get fined/points and insurance would be invalid.

is your car 4 seats or 5 seats ? it says on the V5

Thank you - I've just looked at the V5 - it's a 4 seater

Thank you for all your responses (I was worried about being coerced, now I don't need to be!!!)

it's a simple answer really. it's like having 6 people sitting in a 5 seater car,
you would be adding one extra passenger.
those 4 seater cars like Toyota aygo are for 4 passengers
