    Varies from state to state. Some states allow unlimited attempts where others there is a limit on average of 3 and then you have to take a remedial course

    I believe as many times you can afford it, however I heard if you have to take it 5x or more proof must be shown that you have had some sort of refresher.

    as Silverdragon noted, each state has its own rules/standards on this, and they do vary from one state to the next. You need to find out what the rule is in the state in which you're trying to get licensed.
