MOT Manual - Headlamps -Section 4.1.5
Levelling devices - manual (driver control)
has been testable since 2018.

Your employer (& probably your QC ) needs to get himself up to speed.

Defective devices can be removed,
P & A at retest.:(

It is correct to test the headlamp adjuster switch.. if either or both lamps don't work you use the RfR. When the motor is retested if this switch is removed you would 'pass and advise'

Below is a screen shot from Matters of Testing blog..

During testing I always use the manual headlight adjuster to ensure the headlights respond. Usually when I fail a headlight or switch it's repaired or replaced. However, recently I've been told by my employer (also a tester) that if the part required is not available the failure should be ignored and passed on retest. Reason being he can't find in the manual where it says to test the manual adjuster. I've looked too and can't find it. Although there is a RfR. Am I incorrect to test the switch and operation? Is it only for automatic adjuster systems?
