might be worth checking whether the burners (bulbs) have ever been replaced and, if so that they are properly inserted and the securing screws tightened up. either could mean a misalignment that would be affecting the beam pattern.

Having said that the OE HID's in the civic don't have a particularly defined pattern anyway (and aren't actually that good) as they are reflector housings and not the more normal projector units that most HID lights have (that latter point might be why your MOT tester is suggesting they are a failure if he's not familiar with Civics).
