An Adelaide taxi driver accused of indecently assaulting a disabled passenger has appeared in court for the first time to face several charges.

The man aged in his early 50s allegedly assaulted the intellectually disabled woman after covering up on-board security cameras.

He cannot be identified for legal reasons.

The man appeared in the Holden Hill Magistrates Court charged with indecent assault, dishonestly exploiting a position of advantage to cause detriment and interfering with a security camera system in a taxi.

The man's lawyer, Casey Isaacs, told the court the charges would be contested.

The case was transferred to the Adelaide Magistrates Court for a further hearing in March.

Police say the man's taxi permit was revoked after his arrest.
