Registration ECFMG certificate how long it takes and about the testing dates availability

When we say we have to pay while getting the various forms, the payment is for whichever exam u choose right?

Once u print the form, is there a time limit within which u need to send it to ECFMG? coz if my form needs the medical school official's sign, ill first have to send the form to him and only then can i post it to ECFMG. so the delay involved is OK right?

Once verification is done, how long till they send u the permit?

Before I select the eligibility period, is it prudent that i go to the test center and check if dates are available? i plan to select feb-mar-apr, so im starting the application process now, am i being too early or too late?

please clear my doubts, really appreciate it.
thanks so much

-Yes, there's no problem in the time period between sending your Forms to the medical school until you get the permit.

-Once you are verified they'll send you an email telling you that you are verified and you can go and get your permit from your OASIS account.

-You don't need to go to the testing center you can check dates availability in the Prometric website here
