Seen many worse walk through an MOT.
Bounce test to check operation and forget them.
If you really want to check they haven't snapped.
Scenic/Megane shocks have been known to snap at the top, under the dust cover.
Only real way of checking is to remove but jacking car up so load is off can allow you to shake them and try to find any play or hear any knocking.
Would normally hear a knocking when driving as well.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
