PPL FI without CPL theory

I just passed my FI(R) + CRI Today. I’m now trying to figure out the intricacies of what I can and Cannot do. This is what i’ve figured out so far- is this correct? The two at the bottom in ‘unsure’ are directly relevant as i have one person in each who would like it if i could. I’m just starting my walk through EASA Easy Access FCL Rules…but the answers aren’t easy!

CAN DO
NPPL(M)
NPPL(SSEA)
LAPL
SEP Class Rating (i.e. for an ATPL) – Yes (CRI)
PPL Biennials
Differences – EFIS
Differences – VP Prop
Differences – Retractable
Differences – Tailwheel

CANNOT DO
PPL – No.
Aerobatic Rating – No, But a CRI CAN if rating held.
Night Rating – No, need to get Night Rating instructor add-on.
IR(R) – No, need an FI/IR(R) Add-on.

UNSURE
LAPL-PPL Upgrade
UKPPL-PPL Upgrade

Well done and enjoy!

Why can a FI not instruct PPL? Or is it only as long as it is restricted?

A PPL FI without the CPL TK can not instruct for the PPL.

In Italy, the National CAA confirmed to me that a FI (R) without TK CPL can perform all the privileges of a CRI SEP. except that a CRI SEP has not to perform any hours, under supervision, while the FI R has to.
For Aerobatic, Towing and Night rating, you just need to hold the rating and then perform a check with a qualified rating instructor that release you for that.

As far as I understand, this is not a new exam — it is the usual CPL TK exam. The new thing is that for the purpose of instructing for the PPL you can take the exam only without having to take a CPL course.
