This is the sixth year of using DRA PAT testing Ltd. As in previous years, all the administration is smooth and it is easy to sort out a site visit. The pricing has remained very competitive and the service is great value for money. We intend to keep using the company for our annual PAT testing.
Response from the owner: Thanks Richard
Excellent as always
Response from the owner: Thanks for the 5-stars Michael
Another year, another excellent service. Thanks to the team at DRA we have had another very smooth and painless PAT visit. From the initial reminder, in plenty of time to get everyone at our end booked in and ready to bring mobile equipment to the office, to the friendly, polite and competent Tester, Jane, I can’t fault the service. We have been happy to refer this company on to others as they are very professional and reliable. Thanks to one and all. See you next year.

Great service, price and speed of testing from DRA, they continue to be the best in all they do.
Response from the owner: Hi Julie, thanks so much for this :). Jane told me that you'd apologised for pressing 4 star rather than 5 - you can just edit the review 😀 although it makes a change to have a different review placed.

These are from our early days, before we started getting Google reviews. 

Gary at Norham High School, North Shields: “First year we have had DRA Electricals do the PAT Testing in the school .Very pleased with service. Will be dealing with them again . Very Helpful and very reliable . Would recommend”

Keith at Seaham Hall Hotel, Co. Durham: “I will certainly be working with Richard in years to come, not just is he professional but background knowledge of other areas was a great advantage for us. Richard is also very reasonable and fully understands the control of budgets.”

Mick at Seaham School of Technology, Co. Durham: “Richard has pat tested on our site for the past 3 years and he will continue to do so in the future. He was able to work around our schedule so we were in no way inconvenienced.”

Mr G Thompson, of Springfield Motor Group, Washington: “Highly professional and motivated person. High level of service, advice and resourcefulness. Richard’s knowledge is enough to offer:- accurate, logical, assertive, competitive advice”.

Katherine at Hellens Group, Tyne and Wear: “DRA PAT Testing carried out PAT testing in an efficient manor with minimal disruption to Hellens office based employees. I would be pleased to recommend DRA to other companies in the North East Excellent service. Richard carried out the testing quickly and efficiently in a busy working environment.”

Ian at Sanderson Weatherall, Newcastle Upon Tyne: “We used DRA for our PAT testing this year following an approach to our office by Richard. The cost was very competitive in comparison to other quotations received, providing good value for money. The service was excellent and work was done outside office hours so there was no disruption to our business. We will certainly use them again.”

Steve at APEC Environmental Limited, Hebburn: “Richard provides us with an honest, reliable and cost-effective solution to our PAT testing needs. His risk-based approach to setting re-test frequencies is a breath of fresh air compared to some multi-national companies who’ll gladly take your money every year, unnecessarily in many instances”.

Sarah, a Medical Centre Practice Manager: “Richard provided a friendly and professional service which was very good value for money.  I would happily ask Richard to PAT test our equipment in future.”

Nick at Northern Counties Safety Group in Durham: “DRA Electricals provided a prompt and efficient PAT testing service. The cost was very competitive and the standard of work was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend the Company.”
