4.1.1 Presence, condition and operation
A motorcycle or motorcycle combination must be fitted with one headlamp, although additional headlamps may be fitted. Apart from headlamp security, the check only applies to mandatory lamps.

Looking at the extract Sanqhar provides, I'd think that only the original headlight/s should be tested ... the "mandatory" lights. As long as any additional "accessory" lights aren't about to fall off, they can be ignored.

It's not a new thing if there fitted they have to work pretty obvious really why would you have aux light's that didnt work its the same as a headlight in the same respect as if indicators are fitted they have to work.if you have it fitted it should work
I've always been under the impression that "if it's there, it has to work" - I even removed a set of auxiliaries before the MOT once because it was quicker to do than repair the (just failed) switch...
