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 Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, Durham, Northumberland 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.
Our engineers 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.
Our PAT testing prices offer value for money, are competitive and usually come at a fixed rate so there are no shocks when the invoice comes in.
In addition we provide electrical testing for fixed appliances, your main wiring installation and emergency lighting.
What our clients 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
Dacon Fabrication, Gateshead
PAT testing Newcastle upon Tyne
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
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 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 Newcastle upon Tyne rental properties, the council requires landlords to PAT test electrical appliances, and it is a requirement of HMO licences.
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.
We manage over 100 rental properties in Newcastle upon Tyne; DRA PAT testing have managed the appliances in them for years now and always do a great job. We trust them with keys and feedback from tenants is always really good.
