Your Local expert for PAT Testing


DRA PAT Testing is owned by Richard Ayre, Director for DRA Solutions limitedI am Richard Ayre; as a PAT engineer I have been carrying out portable appliance testing across the North East since 2009. I am fully qualified, accredited, insured and DBS checked. Whether you represent a company or work for yourself, you can always count on me to provide you with a professional electrical appliance inspection and testing service.


I can guarantee high standards, affordable prices and a very quick turnaround – I usually process the PAT Testing Certificate and send it to you, along with a comprehensive report, as a PDF document within 24 hours of the inspection completing.

We can inspect and test not only portable appliances with plugs, but those built in or fixed to the main electrical installation, so you don’t need to use different contractors for different equipment, saving you time and money.
