    Worried passengers will be able to verify details of taxi drivers before they get into the car – thanks to a free, new app.

    The government-backed Driver Check app (pictured) allows passengers to check the licence details of both the vehicle and the driver on their mobile phones. They will also see an ID photo.

    The passenger is then able to forward these details to a friend for added security. The aim is to reassure taxi customers that they are travelling safely, and that there is a record of their trip.
    Passengers should refuse to travel with any drivers not signed up to the app.

    It is compulsory for all taxi drivers to participate in the National Transport Authority initiative and any who refuse face a fine of €40.
