The National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) has not placed any limits on the number of times you can attempt to pass the Series 7 exam.

However, there are restrictions on the amount of time that must pass between exam attempts. For your first three attempts you must wait 30 days after each attempt, and for every new attempt after that you must wait a period of six months.
