Become a mytaxi driver
As a licensed taxi driver you have access to a career where you can earn a very healthy income. Demand for taxis in Ireland continues to grow so there’s more than enough work for new drivers.
There aren’t many professions out there that offer you the same flexibility as being a taxi driver. As an independent driver you get to be your own boss. You can choose your hours and what days you work. It's all your call!
Choosing a new career isn’t always an easy decision. Thankfully mytaxi will be with you every step of the way. We’ll help you pass your test, get you on the road, and send you more business than you know what to do with.
See how much money you could earn in a week.

A purpose built online training platform designed to help you pass the SPSV entry test.
I think mytaxi Manual is a fantastic addition to anyone considering a career as a professional driver. Its ease of use and transparency make it an ideal study aid.
The platform uses Google Maps and Street View to provide visual context for memorising questions. After a couple of hours using the platform I found myself becoming much more confident.
You can drive with mytaxi in any county that you are licensed in.
You can drive for as many hours a week as you choose – the more you work the more you earn!
At present, the National Transport Authority (NTA) is only accepting applications for new vehicle licences for wheelchair accessible taxis, wheelchair accessible hackneys, local area hackneys, and limousines.
This means that the NTA is not currently issuing new SPSV vehicle licences for taxis that aren’t wheelchair accessible.
With that said there are a number of exciting alternatives which we have outlined here.
