Transfers Ending Notification

3 April 2014

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has been informed that Section 14 of the Taxi Regulation Act 2013, which prohibits the transfer of taxi licences, will come into operation on 6th April 2014.  In accordance with that section, the NTA may not transfer any taxi licence after that date.
Vehicle transfer applications which have been received by the NTA by close of business on 4th April 2014 (the last working day before this prohibition comes into force) and which also have been booked in (prior to close of business on 4th April 2014) for a suitability inspection, will be processed.
For the avoidance of doubt, the requirement is that the vehicle is booked in for its suitability inspection prior to close of business on 4th April – the actual inspection can take place subsequent to that date.
