Electrical Testing Specialists providing PAT Testing in Newcastle upon Tyne
Giving you peace of mind that your electrical equipment is safe and you remain compliant
PAT testing in Newcastle upon Tyne
What is PAT testing and why do we do it?
We inspect and test electrical appliances to make sure they are safe to reduce the risk of a user getting an electric shock, or the appliance starting a fire.
A business like yours is responsible for ensuring its electrical equipment is safe, and should the need arise, be able to prove that they have done so. If you choose the cheapest PAT testing offer you may not have the appropriate documentation to support you.
If you use DRA PAT testing you will – we provide every client with a fully itemised report of every appliance tested including the electrical readings obtained; which have been previously scrutinised (successfully) by Ofsted, CQC and Health and Safety advisors.
It is necessary to maintain safe electrical equipment because faulty equipment can lead to the risk of an electric shock, overheating and fire – electrical equipment is identified as one of the main causes of fire in the UK every year.
Regular inspection and testing of equipment is an essential part of any preventative maintenance programme and helps to ensure that equipment is safe.
We will carry out a visual inspection of every appliance and where necessary do electrical tests too. Every appliance that passes will be labelled with a Pass PAT testing sticker; if repairs are needed we will do them, usually without charge.
We will also check the earth continuity of integrated appliances where the plug can not be accessed.
We provide a high standard of service at a realistic price – by charging a sensible fee we can work at a normal pace which ensures we don’t need to cut corners, and don’t make mistakes, unlike the cheapest competitors.
You also benefit from a budget-able quote – the price we quote is the price we charge; the only add-ons are extra appliances tested. We don’t charge to test things like sockets which have nothing to do with PAT.

Our PAT testing process
Our engineer will come to your premises, and after they’ve been introduced and had a walk around your site they’ll set about working in the order they and you combined feel is best to minimise disruption to your business.
We will first carry out thorough inspections to each appliance, visually, and then carry out the appropriate electrical tests using a Portable Appliance Testing machine.
If the appliance is considered defective in any way, if it can be repaired we will do so, and then when it passes it’ll have a pass label applied; the label shows the ID number, and the month and year the test took place. We will of course remove the old label first. We also aim to apply your label neatly in a discreet yet visible location.
If the appliance will not pass the test it will be labelled with a red “Fail do not use” label, and the contact on site will be notified.
When the job is complete, the engineer will return to the office where they will download the data and create your PAT testing Certificate Report, which he will email to you usually the very same day.

What our customers say
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.
Jackson Hogg Recruitment, Newcastle
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
Thank you so much DRA PAT Testing. The process to book testing was very easy, and Richard could fit in the exact time frame we had. The tester had spare parts and was very professional and efficient. Great value, and respectful of covid guidelines. I would highly recommend and we will be using DRA Testing in a years time.
Great service, used this company for a few years running and we are never disappointed. Very friendly and professional, we happily recommend to others and will continue to use then in the future
