Virginia Tire & Auto of South Riding also hosts car seat safety checks during the year where certified technicians will check your car seats and make sure they are installed correctly. Our car seat technicians are certified through Safekids.org and went through over 40 hours of training and exams to become certified. An appointment to have your car seat checked usually takes about 15 to 25 minutes for 1-2 car seats to be checked. Our technicians will not only ensure a correct seat installation, but also help you understand how to check your seat periodically and make sure it’s still secure. Visit our community page to see when the next date is and schedule your car seat check.
