There is not a waiting period for your first two retakes of an exam. If a test subject is taken 3 times, you'll have to wait 60 days before you are able to retest. There is not a limit on how many times you can test in a year.

Retesting Cost
Test candidates will receive two discounted retakes for every GED® test subject purchased but did not pass. They will have 365 days after taking their full price test to use the retakes. After receiving two retakes at the reduced price, the price of the test subject returns to the regular price. If a candidate does not pass that subject again, they will receive two more retakes at the reduced rate.
