Default You cannot extend twice

You can only extend your eligibility period one time.

Once you have done that (three months then extended to six months) then after that you cannot extend any more. You have to apply again and pay the fees again.

you can move your date as many times as you want within your 3 month eligibility period, and you can still move your "triad" period....but your triad period will only move up 3 more months

does that make sense?

I can't understand what you are saying.
Please tell us what is your eligibility period in months and tell us if you have filed an extension of eligibility period or not.

In that case you will have to extend your eligibility period.
You will be assigned a new eligibility from 1st Sept to 30th Nov.
And you will have to take up the exam within that period.

In order to extend your eligibility period you will have to pay the extension fees and you will get your revised permit in a week's time.
