  1. Get an inspection.
    CPS Team Colorado supports more than 140 inspection stations across the state. Inspection stations offer assistance for parents and caregivers, and inspectors can check to make sure your child's car seat is the right size and is installed properly.
    Find an inspection station near you.

  2. See if you qualify for a subsidized car seat.
    Some low-income individuals and certain organizations qualify for subsidized car seats through CDOT and the Colorado State Patrol. You can view our map of official inspection stations, and you can contact or visit your nearest inspection station to speak to a trained technician to find out if you qualify. Find an inspection station near you.
