You can test as many times as you need to, but you need to wait three weeks to retest. The waiting period might be waived if you score within 30 points of your goal. You won’t be able to take a subject test more than three times in one calendar year because there are only three versions of the test each year. Before you test again, it’s a good idea to go back and study, to make sure that you’re prepared. The fee to retest in Utah is $25 for GED writing tests and $20 per subject for other tests.
