The key wording in the UK MOT regs is "may have" and "if fitted".
Self leveling and washers is not an MOT requirement for HID'd cars, but if washers and/or levelling are fitted they must work.
There are cars with OEM factory fitted HIDs which don't have washers or levelling and the UK MOT is worded to take that into account.
Washers that don't work is a failure.
Lack of washers is not a failure.
Same applies to self-levelling.
