Reserve a whole morning/afternoon for it. The test and the interview themselves are quick, but there's a lot of waiting - you have to wait until everybody is in the room, the agents will explain the test, you'll have to wait to be called for interview after the test and, if your family is in the same process, you'll have to wait for each member to be interviewed. I could enter the room at 13h, left after 16h. Most of the time was waiting between test and interview - I couldn't see a particular order, they don't necessarily call first who finished the test first.

As for the test center, the letter will indicate where you have to go.

Thank You Imran01, I just updated the spreadsheet.
I noticed the "In process" status and "DM" were in the same day. :D ;D :D I believe that is because the applicant is a minor under 14.

Yesterday we received a letter (dated 23 Jan) in which CIC asks for the applicant PR Card and they want it in less than 60 days, the problem is that we didn't receive the card yet.

He became PR on the 2nd of November 2016 flag-poling at Boundary Bay. We thought to receive the card in around 50 days but it is now almost tree months we are waiting for it.

How long does a PR card actually takes to be delivered normally? Should I call CIC and ask about the delay?

It is single application, do I need to bring any documents and Are they interview randomly or all has to go through interview?

Thanks,

Bring the originals of every document you sent a copy of. Everyone go through interview, even if just to check minor things. If everything is in order with your process, the agent might not even check every document - but you must have everything, just in case. All the info will be on the test letter.
