PAT, or Portable Appliance Testing is a routine safety inspection of electrical appliances (fitted with a plug) to make sure they meet legal electrical safety requirements. DRA PAT Testing carry out PAT testing in all areas of the UK including Newcastle upon Tyne, Manchester, York, Leeds, Southampton, Bristol, etc.

We have over 500 regular clients and more 5-Star reviews on Google than any other local PAT testing company because we actually care about your safety – for us the importance of our work is to give you peace of mind that your equipment is safe; not how many stickers we can put on. 

We promise you that we will carry out repairs to ensure your equipment is safe, and provide you with a fully itemised PAT Test Certificate to ensure you comply with the regulations. We will do this at a time that is convenient to you (we operate 24/7) within minimal disruption to your business or home. 

We do all this at affordable, competitive PAT testing prices usually at a fixed rate so there are no shocks when the invoice comes in. 

We are also able to offer electrical testing for fixed appliances, your main wiring installation and emergency lighting.

What our clients say

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

These guys were recommended to us and they came in recently to do the PAT Testing. The service was first class and report very professionally presented in an easy to understand format. It is rare I give 5 stars in a review however in this case it is thoroughly deserved and would recommend DRA PAT Testing Limited to any organisation 

Dacon Fabrication, Gateshead

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Excellent, friendly and efficient service. We have a lot of staff that work flexibly and Richard was happy to pop back at a later date to test their equipment which we hadn’t initially mentioned. Would recommend DRA to any organisation that needs appliance testing carried out.

PAT testing Certificates for the UK

The best PAT testing price would include FREE remedial repairs, replacement plugs and fuses – which is what we do. Also we offer fixed prices so you don’t get the shock when the bill comes in like you do with per item rates. 

Our professional, reliable PAT testing service is carried out by experienced engineers who have been checked by CHAS and DBS. We use the quickest industry leading, data storing machines available to ensure the service you get and the report you receive is the best possible. All our records are securely stored and can be re-issued to you for free if you lose your copy. 

Our service is carried out efficiently, quickly and using tried and tested methods that guarantee minimal disruption to your business. To make the process even slicker in the future we carry out cable sorting and re-organising as we go, to create an efficient, safer working environment. 

The price for testing 110 volt and 230 volt equipment is the same, and we can also test 3-phase and fixed appliances. We carry out a through formal visual inspection on EVERY appliance, as well as carrying out our tests; many cheap PAT testing companies skip the visual inspection (which is actually the most important part) to save time. 

On completion of your tests we will send you a PAT Test Certificate fully itemised with electrical readings. 

We cover all of the UK

What our clients say

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

We are very impressed with your service, everything very professional and as you promised. As a small business we find it hard to find reliable companies to deal with, it makes a refreshing change to come across a company with similar ideals to us  – a fair job at a fair price with pleasant employees and proper paperwork!

PAT testing multiple UK sites

If you have multiple sites around the UK that require PAT testing we can help; we have a team of engineers based in strategic locations around the country so we can cover most areas.

We carry out testing for industry, hotels, retail companies etc that have sites in different regions and can work your business into our schedule to keep the prices competitive.

As we are frequently travelling around the country we tend to tie in different contracts at the same time so we are doing a group of clients together – it makes more sense for us to do 4 different clients in the same town at the same time than to drive around the country doing just one job in each town; it also helps to keep the prices affordable for you. 

We would provide you with a PAT test Certificate for each site, so you know exactly what equipment you have there, and how safe they are.

We are able to test both the portable appliances and the integrated equipment such as white goods and cookers; where-as some PAT testers with less electrical training cannot; so you get a higher standard of service. 

We are DBS and Police checked, so you can leave us to deal with your regional locations directly, give us keys etc to save you the bother. 

ALL minor repairs (such as replacing defective plugs and fuses) will be fixed on the spot and FREE of charge.

For every client and every job we provide a fully comprehensive PAT Testing Certificate Report.

We provide every client with a 4 or 5 part record:

  1. A front cover
  2. A guidance document telling you important information
  3. The PAT testing Certificate
  4. The itemised PAT testing report showing all items tested, identification numbers with descriptions and further information, and the results of the tests completed
  5. Information on failed items (if any failed)

The report is sent to you as one pdf document attached to an email address. 

A PAT test certificate is issued to business owners (and others who get PAT done), after their electrical appliances have been tested. The certificate confirms that the company the certificate has been issued to is being compliant with the regulations by having their appliances tested regularly, to prevent damage arising or risks increasing. 

The certificate is evidence that the responsible person is taking steps to ensure safety of users of equipment. 

DRA PAT Testing limited will come to you to test your appliances, and when satisfied that your equipment is safe, will issue a PAT testing certificate. 

The PAT testing report lists all appliances tested, each with their own unique identification number – the same number that is on the label we attached to the appliance after testing it. 

The results obtained by the tests that took place are shown next to the appliance, these include; result of the visual inspection (arguably the most important part of the test), result of the earth test carried out on appliances that require an earth for safety, result of the insulation test which is carried out on all appliances with exposed metal parts, and the result of the Polarity test which is carried out on power cords that have an earth wire (e.g. extension and IEC leads). Other Tests may be carried out that we don’t show the results for, such as if a socket tester or voltage meter has been used. 

The results are broken down into locations at your site, for example, separating the main office from the meeting room, and from the kitchens. 

Additionally we may carry out a thermal survey on a server system that can’t be turned off. We will confirm that the appliance is safe, to the best of our knowledge from the survey but cannot confirm it is safe internally as we just don’t know without unplugging it and testing it fully. 

If any appliances couldn’t be repaired by our engineer they would fail the test, and this would be recorded in the failures report, included. 

There is also an overall PAT testing certificate provided that shows that you are compliant with the regulations; this is something you may want to display on your health and safety board. 

The PAT Testing Certificate must show the address where the testing took place, the name and address of the company that did the testing, the date of the test and it is recommended but not essential, that an expiry date be shown. After all the results of the test are only as good as the time they are done; the tester can’t guarantee the appliance will stay in that condition until X date. 

The PAT testing certificate doesn’t show the list of appliances or their results, that is for the report; the certificate is an official document that provides proof that appliances have been tested so that business owners can confirm their compliance with the regulations. 

DRA PAT Testing Limited is an independent specialist electrical appliance testing company, with a strong reputation for high standards offered at competitive prices.

Since we began in 2009 we have built up a portfolio of more than 500 regular clients, many of whom are on managed plans for their PAT Testing frequency. The Certificate we provide them with shows the date of the most recent test; the report also shows the next test due date, based on the risk assessment carried out at time of testing.
