Local PAT testing in Newcastle upon Tyne
To comply with the UK’s Health and Safety regulations, and to ensure your insurance policy is valid, you need to be able to prove that electrical equipment is safe to use; the best way to do this is to have a PAT test carried out on them.
We provide local PAT Testing in Newcastle upon Tyne to businesses of all shapes and sizes – if you need some PAT testing doing then get in touch.
We can help you with your electrical testing needs including:
Our engineers are based in the North East, so don’t worry we’re not about to send someone who doesn’t know the local area, and you get the benefit of working with the same engineer(s) long term as the same one of us will keep coming back, as he/she will be the best person to manage your equipment safety as we’ll know the history of it.
Regular PAT testing helps to keep your legal obligations for electrical safety in check, and also keeps your insurance policy valid; but perhaps most of all it gives you peace of mind that your electrical equipment is safe.
What’s involved in the PAT Test?
We will inspect and test all your portable electrical appliances, and can give you guidance on what to do with other electrical systems too.
This is what we do..
- Firstly we check our own safety – can the appliance be switched off safely, etc.
- Then can the appliance be switched off – if something can’t be switched off, tell us asap.
- We check appliance is suitable for the environment it is in
- Then we check the appliance, starting with the plug, then the cable, then the appliance.
- If the cable detaches from the appliance it is tested independently.
- If repairs have to be carried out we will do so; nearly always included in the price and supply parts as required.
- If the appliance passes all checks we will label it and the results are recorded on our PAT testers.
- If it fails, we photograph it, record it and mark it with a fail label. We report it to the site contact too.
- On completion of the job we feed anything necessary back to our site contact then download the results.
- Using the results obtained and our risk assessments we compile our report which will be sent to you as a pdf either before we leave the site, or within 24 hours.
What’s included in the price?
- Rewiring of plugs and replacement parts
- Supply and fit of replacement plugs to meet British Standards
- Supply and fit of replacement fuses (3, 5, 10 and 13amps)
- A tidy up and sort out of messy cables
- Guidance on how to improve safety measures
- Unique ID numbered label for every appliance
- Failure report detailing failures and actions
- Itemised report of passed appliances including electrical readings
- Certificate of compliance
- Reminders for retests so you’re always compliant

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

We’ve used Richard for the last 4 years, always sends reminders and is very competitive price wise. Nothing is a hassle and I’d recommend him for any work in his field.
