Welcome to DRA PAT testing

I am Richard Ayre; since 2009 I have been trading as DRA PAT Testing in Newcastle upon Tyne and across the North East of England, building a reputation as a trustworthy, reliable and cost effective PAT tester. I carry out inspection and testing of portable electrical appliances, which includes all appliances fitted with a plug, or intended to be used with a plug including computers, white goods, power tools, cleaning equipment, etc.

I am also Operations Director for the PAT Testing Network – an association striving to raise standards across our industry.

I consider myself a specialist in low-risk environments such as offices, rental property, small businesses and schools whilst being more than capable in the surroundings of industry, construction, etc.

I believe in giving honest and sensible advice whilst keeping the service simple and without fuss; there is no need for me to baffle my clients with complications – they come to me to resolve their issues and I provide the solutions to do so.

If you maintain electrical equipment in a safe standard, that is, you look after it, then it’s going to stay safe, just like it was when you bought it – it’s my job to confirm that – if all the appliances are safe then we’re all happy, but finding the odd one that has developed a fault is the bonus of an inspection, as finding a faulty appliance and fixing it or removing it, prevents an accident.

When the job is done the results are downloaded into our Simply Pats software and converted into a neat and tidy, professional report which is sent to you via PDF as soon as it is ready (can be same day if required).

I won’t say we’ll take on any job or guarantee to beat any price because we don’t – we’re professional, and honest, and know our limitations but give us a try and you will be impressed. Our usual work can be anything up to 5000 items on one site and average rate is just £1.00 per item.

If you’re not yet convinced drop me an email and ask whatever questions you have, or see what recent clients have said about us on our testimonials page.
