As mentioned, MIT are doing a huge amount of research, eg:

Google / YouTube for more.
My own views. For better or worse :)

I'm not sure of the benefit of raising an advanced driving/riding qualification to assist one's case. Better to convince than impress.

Using an "advanced qualification" to support your case is just argumentum ad verecundiam. As pointed out, the argument should stand or fall on its merit.

Above edited to remove unnecessary pretentiousness. :D

P.S. It still doesn't make any sense.

Does it mean that if you've ended up in court then it's admitting to having earned a 'failed with distinction' certificate? ;)

I'm usually very suspicious of people who use Latin. I was simply pointing out that even its direct translation is meaningless nonsense.

It's the equivalent of "because I'm your Dad, and I say so" :D

Well, the direct translation is inaccurate so that probably doesn't help. Try reading up on "argument from authority" or "appeal to authority".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_from_authority

The point is that using an advanced driving qualification (e.g. IAM test pass) to support an argument when it is arguably not a qualification and certainly not authoritative is a bit silly. If the argument cannot stand without the fallacy then it is weak and will fall.

As mainbeam said: "'Better to convince than impress."
