Ireland’s taxi driver check app is a new service from the National Transport Authority that allows taxi users to verify that the vehicle they are about to hire has been registered correctly and that the driver has the appropriate licence to operate the vehicle. Users can search by the car registration number, the vehicle taxi licence number, the driver licence number or by scanning appropriate QR codes. The current driver and vehicle information can be displayed to help ensure user’s safety. If information is incorrect, it’s possible to submit a report. There is also the facility to email a friend with trip details.
Please be advised that personal user data may be compromised through the use of this application on a jail broken device.
Ireland’s licenced taxis, hackneys, limos and PSVs are covered by this app including rural locations as well as cities such as Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford. Please note, some drivers have yet to register with the checker so they will not appear until such time as they have.

I'm a taxi driver and the app does work , I check my own cars to make sure drivers registered , the only reason a driver doesn't show up is if he/her hasn't registered on the car or are illegal drivers or the car isn't licensed then report that using their number plate

It’s a excellent way to have a safe and transparent Journey home,especially for young ladies enjoying a social night out,there are rogue drivers taking advantage of night clubbers heading home. I would also advise using the mytaxi app also provides excellent safety and accountability.
I downloaded this app having read about it somewhere & assuming that the “Report” facility would permit one to report a driver for any number of reasons such as ripping one off etc. I was completely fleeced this morning & decided to report the driver but it only allows a report of either driver or vehicle details being incorrect. What an absolute joke
