You can check the diode between gate and cathode with a meter, but that won't tell you if it works. Checking switching characteristics will require a test circuit.

Connect the Anode to meter red lead, Cathode to black lead, set meter to diode test, and short gate to Anode, then remove short, meter will beep if thyristor is ok, or show 0.7 to 0.9V.
