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 Newcastle upon Tyne, North and South Tyneside 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.

The business is mainly me; I do have a couple of trusted aids who help me during busy periods but in the majority of cases it will be me you deal with and it’ll be me attending to do the work.

Just because it’s just me though don’t assume your job is too big; our usual practice is for sites up 5,000 items we can comfortably handle; most of our work though is for landlords, in office-based businesses and schools.

Since forming in 2009 I have recorded over 300,000 appliances inspected and now have more than 500 active clients.

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.

The engineers report we provide whilst on site confirms any areas for concern and notifies you of any failed appliances and what to do next.

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.

I used DRA PAT testing to test all of my professional audio equipment, I was attracted by the price and the excellent reviews I had heard from many others in my field. He was highly competitive on price, he arrived and showed an amazing amount of customer service compared to others I had used previously, he was more than happy to offer free advice and went above and beyond what i have had before with other companies, such as explaining correct fuse ratings, proper earthing etc. I have already booked him for next year and will certainly be recommending him to all my friends and associates.
