What happens during a PAT test?

We carry out a number of inspections and tests.

1. A visual examination – We look for any damage to the appliance that may cause it to be faulty. This is an incredibly important part as most fails happen at this stage.

2. An in-depth inspection and test – This helps us pick up on any damage that may not be immediately visible. It includes earth continuity, lead polarity and insulation resistance checks.

3. Once we’ve completed these tests, we conduct a function check to ensure that everything works as it should do.

£40 minimum, This covers up to the first 20 tests Then after that it is only £1.50 per test.

There are no hidden extras, the only extra that may be charged is travelling if I have to travel more than 10 miles.

Can anyone carry out a PAT test?

NO.

As a Pat Tester I had to undergo extensive training. I had to sit an exam and learn how to use the complicated equipment. (yes i did test everything in my own home).

To carry out a PAT test you need to have the right training. Ideally, you need to hold a certification in PAT testing or higher. You’d also have to buy a PAT testing machine which needs annual calibration and labels to generate reports too.

I am certified, insured  & DBS checked so you can be and assured all of your appliances are compliant.
