Cars with HID come equipped with auto leveling headlights and headlight washers as it is required by the law. Not sure if this is required by the MOT in the UK though - it is not where I live.

With great difficulty if your MOT tester does their job properly, as mentioned by @bronc you need multiple extra bits of hardware installed AND working correctly, such as auto levelling and headlight washers etc.
