    Seen it they need to review the NCT as well , in every other E.U country there is more than one test body so if you are not happy with one you can go to the other, I think what ever credibility the NCT had was lost after the revelations on prime time

    The double jobbing bus driver was a joke.I wouldn't like to get into his taxi or on his bus.And then we had a woman doing 'SCHOOL RUN' 13 kids in her taxi with only 8 seat belts.

    The NCT process is definately corrupt.

    The taxi industry has people walking over each other and taking whatever cost saving measures they can to try and make a living out of it. It also has people using it as a cover for other illegitimate activities. So it's difficult to call it corrupt but it definately contains a very bad element.

    there was a time when a taxi plate cost €50k+ and a good
    living could be made. then 1000s of people entered the business
    because of what they called 'deregulation'. theres far too many at it
    and there is great tension in that industry already...

    the show brought so much to the forefront that needs to be investigated more thoroughly. I think they should of separated this in to two shows out of the investigation, one just on the taxi industry and the other on the NCT. I wonder if they dug a little further would they be able to get away without paying the correct VRT on imported cars.

    Nothing most of us knew already, I know a guy that knows a guy (usually thing in Ireland) that can get a car NCT pass for as little as double the test fee, 1 for them 1 for me system, you just book it in the normal way so everything is ligit, then give him the headup your car is being done and he makes sure he's the guy testing it..
