There is actually a setting they check when doing roadworthies, so a servo/mechanic would be one place to start.

other way is, where you feel safe and comfortable.

Spotlights are the same, I like to see to the sides as well as ahead, so adjust mine accordingly

i adjust mine so that on low beam they dont go above boot height at 20 metres, thats about 1.5 metres high, works ok, even have thenm a little lower so if I have something in the back i dont have to re-adjustSo many places to go!
So much work to do :0(

Howdy

I know they have to be aimed at a certain position at a certain distance, the
left hand light points more to the left to light up the side of the road where
right light points more to the centre of the vehicles path. garage that does RWC
testing would help you out.

Gunnie, the way i was showed 25 yrs ago for doing pre roadworthing inspection
it,s pretty simple, line up to a wall 10-12ft away have a horizontal line at the same height as the centre of the lights and have a mark for the centreline of the car, then mark out from that mark to the centre of each light at that horizontal line.
Set lights 1/2in left & 1in down from each mark for corrisponding light & that should keep the law happy.

Gunnie, any good workshop will have a headlight aiming device. It rolls up on a stand and sits in front of your light (one at a time) and you adjust you light into it to correspond with the markings inside it for low beam and then switch to high as the final check!
Otherwise its the wall trick!! lol

Goodluck, but please make sure it right!!

Matt.
