No idea about that one. I've never heard about any sort of limit. All the smog places seem to advertise that you can re-test for free if you fail. I'd imagine that if there was some limit to the number of failures you can rack up, then it would be publicized some place, either in the smog shop's literature, or on the DMV website (and I've tried looking these past couple weeks, before I took my own cars in). FWIW, that dynamometer is directly hooked up to the DMV computer, so once they input your VIN, the computer can pull up all those past successes/failures.
