|There is no set distance for this. The important distance is from the beam tester's lens to the car headlamp. This will be in your instruction manual for the beam tester. You are recommended to paint a line on your lift platform to help position the car headlamp. If you are having an OPTL lift then the lift platforms will be long enough for you not to worry about how close the headlamp tester rails are. However, you need to watch the headlamp tester isn't driven into when you have the car on the steering turntables. The pictured garage is close enough.
