Replacement Pages for Older Manuals

The following documents contain just those pages that were affected by the R0108 and R1010 revisions and corrections. Look at the page footers in your Technician Manual to determine what you need to download. The footers on odd numbered pages provide the chapter number and title (e.g., "Chapter 1: Learn, Practice, Explain") and the even numbered pages provide the NHTSA/DOT publication number and revision date.

  • If all or some of the footers on even numbered pages read "DOT HS 810 731 April 2007 (R10/10)" you have the current edition of the Technician Manual (or one with the most recent replacement pages already inserted).
  • If all or some of the footers on even numbered pages read "DOT HS 810 731 April 2007 (R01/08) but none are dated (R10/10), download and insert the R1010 Student Manual Replacement Pages Packet listed below.
  • If ALL of the footers on even numbered pages read "DOT HS 810 731 April 2007", download and insert the R0108 and the R1010 Student Manual Replacement Pages Packets listed below.

Note: Printing the replacement pages is voluntary but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Since there were no major changes to the technical content in the R0108 or R1010 manuals, the "old" April 2007 manuals may still be used.

The last Spanish version of the Technician Manual produced was the 2004 Edition (HS 366 R5/04). The 2007 Edition of the English language curriculum, with its simplified approach and reading level eliminated the need for an updated Spanish version. For more Spanish language child passenger safety educational materials, go to www.nhtsa.gov/Safety/CPS. Scroll down towards the bottom and click on the “Materials in Spanish” link.
