Anyone who is not sure if a taxi driver is registered can quickly check by using the ‘Taxi Driver Check’ app from the National Transport Authority.
This site can also be used to see if a taxi cab or its driver is legitimate.
Users can search by the car registration number, the vehicle taxi licence number and the driver.
