Pm me with your area and if it's close to me I'll pass it onto enforcement officer down here, very nice lads and will always act on info.
If I can't eat it, ride it, break it or drive it, then I'll ask myself "do I really need it?!"

But a certificate of competence is proof that they have passed their test, just not applied for full licence. I imagine if we went to UK in same boat, it wouldn't be an issue either.
