You can take it 4 times in a year.

If you fail the PTCE, you must wait 60 days to apply for second and third attempts. If you fail the third, you must wait 6 months for the fourth and final attempt.


Example:
Let's say you take the PTCB (First time) on Jan 1st and fail. You could take it again (2nd time) around March 2nd. Then if you fail again you could take it (3rd time) around May 3rd. If you fail again, then you could take it (a 4th time) in November. But, if you fail it that fourth time, then you'll have to petition with the PTCB to take it again. I suppose they would also make you wait another 6 months or more after that too.
