    They can ask you to attend a different one. If it's further away and you can't get to that one you can ask them to send you back to the nearest one to you, whether they agree to this is a different matter.
    Waiting times for WCA vary depending on area but it's possible you could be waiting several months, sometimes longer.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
