TFI Driver Check App
Ireland’s TFI Driver Check App is a service provided by Transport for Ireland. It allows users to check that the vehicle they are about to hire has been registered correctly and that the driver has the appropriate license to operate the vehicle. If the information appears incorrect, it is possible to submit a report.
Users can check these details, including a photo of the driver, and can forward this information to a friend (minus the photo). This is to provide reassurance to the user that they are travelling safely and that there is a record of their trip.
All of Ireland’s taxis, hackneys, limousines and all SPSV (Small Public Service Vehicles) drivers are covered by this app. This includes rural locations as well as cities such as Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford.
Please be advised that the National Transport Authority (NTA) are responsible for licencing the vehicles being driven, and An Garda Síochána are responsible for issuing the individual’s driver licence.
Users can search by:
- The car registration number.
- The vehicle taxi licence number (displayed on roof-sign and on door signs).
- The driver licence number (displayed on the ID card on the dashboard of the vehicle).
- Scanning appropriate QR codes, which are located on a disc on both the front and rear windscreens.
