Can you check if it was previously used as a Taxi or Hackney?

Yes of course. If the vehicle you are checking has been licensed for use as a Taxi or Hackney in Ireland this will be highlighted in your report.

It is important to be aware of a cars previous usage status before considering the purchase of such a vehicle. A car which has been previously used as a taxi or hackney may depreciate in value quicker than a car that has been used privately. Unfortunately it is not possible to check if the vehicle has been used as a taxi or hackney in the UK at this time.

However in addition to checking whether a vehicle has been used as a Taxi or Hackney a Motorcheck report will also show all of the vehicles registered uses, such as whether it was ever registered as a “Commercial” vehicle or “Tax Exempt”.
