    The Headlight problem they can do at the MOT station as the machine they test them with is also the machine you set them up with but because it failed on something else aswell, they will leave it.

    basically change your indicator bulb and take it back in. tell them that you changed the indicator bulb but if its possible for them to adjust the headlight pattern at the same time as testing them!
    they should not charge you for adjusting your lights as its a 2 minute job.

    If they say no to adjusting the lights then i strongly reccommend that you go elsewhere next year for your MOT as they are clearly lazy B**T**DS
