Forgive my ignorance, continentals?

Is it the beam deflection you are seeking to alter, is using the lever inside the lamp not allowed on a permanent basis in the UK?

Have I misunderstood?

lever inside the lamp? where is this magical lever? to explain this further, ive been posted to germany and need to chnage my headlights for european (continental) headlights, im not allowed to use the beam deflectors as our majestic armed forces deems them unfit... so is there a lever i can flip to chnage my headlights from rhd to lhd? that would be AMAZING!! : ) do you know where it is?

Right, i can now happily confirm that adjusting the switch on the back of the headlights will pass a European TUM test and British MOT. again many thanks guys for all your help :)
