If I recall correctly there isn't. You either have to use it or lose it.

It's not possible to EXTEND it, but here's one workaround I've heard of. Register for the exam, but set the date significantly in the future (I'm not sure how far out you can schedule it, but go as far as you need to/are able to). As you begin to approach the date (say a week before the test date), you can reschedule the exam for some time later via the Prometric website. I've heard that some people use this technique to 'extend' their voucher time.

This is offered as a possibility, and I don't necessarily recommend it because it's easy to miss the exam date. If you do use this method, make absolutely sure that you reschedule the exam properly or you may end up no-showing. In my location you cannot use the website to change a test date within 24 hours or so of the exam. I would give myself a good deal more time than that, just in case there are technical difficulties. But not that I necessarily fully endorse this method either.

I disclaim all liability should you lose your voucher. Be sure you research and verify that this method will work for you in your location and with your voucher.
