Over the years I have had issues with getting the headlights set to dip to the correct side of the road asliterally by the time I have got to the MOT centre, they are pretty much on the verge of failing.

Is there a method of securing the headlights so they remain dipping to the left, I am getting fed up of paying my mechanic a tenner before each MOT.

cheers in advance

You are mistaking the English process of putting a car through an MOT to that of one in Northern Ireland.

Our MOT centres are government run, we do not have private mechanics issuing MOT's.

Are MOT tests are stringent, what you guys get of with in England would not be tolerated here.

Sounds like you have a pair of US lights.
Click the link below, it'll explain how to turn the beam to the other direction.
