Yes, we disclose if a vehicle was previously or is currently registered as a taxi or hackney and the date that this registration occurred.
A car that is currently or previously been used as a taxi could decline in value quicker than a car that is being used privately due to factors such as a higher mileage could impact the cars overall value.
As you can see from a section of a sample report from MyVehicle.ie, this particular car had been a previous taxi or hackney.
