Car Headlight Focusing & Adjustment in Hamilton

Why do headlights need to be adjusted?

Headlights should aim not too low but not too high.

Your car’s headlights require more than just bright bulbs to function safely and correctly. The bulbs need to aim properly at the road, providing you with the ability to see far in front of you and providing the right amount of visibility for other cars to see you from a distance without blinding on coming drivers.

  • If the headlights are too low, you won’t be able to see things in the distance. Other drivers may take longer to notice your car coming.
  • If the headlights are aimed too high, you won’t be able to clearly see the road in front of you and you will blind other oncoming drivers.

Sometimes, your car’s headlights will require adjustment so that they can be aimed at the right angle. Over time, the headlight may lean in the wrong direction. This can happen due to incorrect bulb replacement. A headlight focusing service will realign the lights with the road, allowing for improved safety when driving at night.

It should also be noted that in New Zealand, incorrectly focused headlights can lead to your car failing its Warrant of Fitness / WOF.
