Hi shuggler - this may answer your question ...


A motor bicycle is only required to have a dipped-beam headlamp (but may also have a main beam) if it:

• was first used on or after 1 May 1995 and cannot exceed 30 mph / 50 km/h with an engine capacity not exceeding 50cc, or

• was first used before 1 January 1972 and with an engine capacity of less than 50cc.

• any machine having a maximum speed not exceeding 30mph / 50km/h.

Can any one clear this up for me. I have an imported bike and to knock the front light on you turn ignition all the way.I have been told by various people that in order to pass the MOT the bike has to have a hi/lo switch fitted!
Is this correct? because the bike hasnt got one!
