My 8 year old is still in a booster. Legally, he doesn't have to, but the strap doesn't cone across him correctly without being in the booster. I agree with checking your state law.

Florida does not have any height/weight requirements. Only age... They are required to be in a carseat til age 3, booster seat til age 5. So your son is 3 years past the required age for your state, and at the "up to" age for other states, but some states to have height/weight requirements, so if you'll be doing any traveling check before you go - but I would say generally, you are okay to quit.
