Hi, I plan to take the exam somewhere in May. Can I register for the exam now and then take it at a later date? Are the exams held everynow and then or is it held only on certain days every month?

Sun doesn't actually administer the test. You buy a voucher from them, but you actually find a local testing center that gives the test.
As for when/where, you'll have to find your local testing center and find out from them when they offer the test. You can probably get information about local testing centers from Sun.

I already bought my Exam voucher. I was told by SUN HQ that I just need to notify the exam center 48hrs in advanced to take my test
Don't worry, you don't need to set up the exam date before hand, and I believe you have up to 1 year to make the decission.

The voucher has an expiring date. (That's probably no news...). But I know people having a voucher expiring before they could or want to take the test. They booked the exam on time and then kept on postponing it till they were ready. Just a tip.

I wouldn't do that. Only schedule your exam once you are ready and not before otherwise you may be unnecessarly stressed towards the end if you don't manage to finish your study on time.

As far as I know, you can take the exam anywhen so you don't have to worry.
