Don't worry... it takes them a few days to extend your block after you've paid your fee online but that should be the only fee associated with the change. I would simply cancel your appointment, wait till you get your new scheduling permit that shows the extended date till the end of March, and then pick a date you're comfortable with. You should not be charged for cancelling your appointment as long as you do it at least 5 business days in advance. I never was and i changed my date more than once.

hello... about 1-2 weeks max - as long as you get the application in in time before the end of december you'll be fine - also, just make sure your 186 or 183 is still valid. They'll tell you that when you're applying.

I'm not sure I follow - what are you paying Prometric for? Did you not cancel within one month? If thats the case, then yes, definitely please call them and make the payment arrangement. Otherwise, everything else is done online...

Right- okay then - I think so - just give them your credit card number and they'll process it. You should be okay. Weird they don't let you do it online..
