The benefit of using a local PAT testing company
We all know that your electrical equipment needs PAT testing, but we also know that you may have some questions you would like answering before booking an appointment, so we’re happy to talk to you first.
We can do that on the phone, by email or a good old chat over a cuppa. Just get in touch so we can arrange to pop in; we can talk about what you need doing, why you need it doing, how often, what’s involved, how it’ll affect your business, how long it takes, how many appliances you have, what it’ll cost, etc. etc. Whatever questions you need answering just ask and we’ll do our best to put your mind at rest.
This is the benefit of working with a local PAT testing company; it’s nice and easy for us to come out to see you. There’s also no obligation for you to choose to use us and this whole process is fully complimentary.
We appreciate also that Covid makes this a little difficult, so to reassure you we always keep our distance, wear masks and wash our hands! Of course, if you prefer to you can simply ask us for a price.
For your peace of mind we have a Health and Safety Policy, Risk Assessment and Method Statement and are Covid secure.

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 Seaham, Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, Durham, Sunderland, and all surrounding areas in workplaces and homes.
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 will do this at a time that is convenient to you (we operate 24/7) within minimal disruption to your business or home.

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 Seaham and the North East
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, Durham Police 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.
Minor repairs, replacement plugs and fuses are fixed automatically, FREE of charge.
What our clients say
DRA PAT testing worked overnight to test our electrical equipment in communal areas of the hotel so as not to disturb our guests; they all worked around our procedures to reduce disruption such as only working in bedrooms after guests checked out.

PAT testing for Landlords
Landlords PAT testing is a best practice process; there is no official legal requirement to do it, but it makes a lot of sense if you do. For example, if an appliance develops a fault and the tenant gets a shock, an investigation will want to know if you have done “everything reasonably practicable” to ensure the tenant was safe.
A PAT test Certificate would show that testing has been carried out, and the appliance was deemed safe, so you did do what you needed to.
In Seaham, the council requires landlords to PAT test electrical appliances to make sure they are safe, to protect vulnerable tenants.
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 tenant 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.
Always had excellent service from Richard, he’s looked after our rental properties for years now, and always turns up on time and does a great job. Highly recommend him!
