23 January 2018

The Maximum Taxi Fare changes on 01 February.

All taximeters must be programmed (calibrated) AND sealed (verified) with the new fare in order to operate from 01 February 2018.

Calibration is completed by a private taximeter installer of your choice. Verification is completed by Legal Metrology Services (LMS) through its contractor Applus. NTA is not involved in either of these contracts. It is up to the taxi operator to arrange for both calibration and verification in good time.

In circumstances where this is not possible, the taxi may not be operated unless formal evidence from LMS of a verification appointment is provided on the spot by the driver to An Garda Síochána or NTA Compliance Officers.

Operating with a taximeter not appropriately calibrated and verified will attract a fine of €60 up to €250 depending on the circumstances.

Please contact LMS now on 01 413 5951 to book a taximeter verification appointment.
