As you all know Salesforce Developer Certification (401) has been retired starting Feb 2017, and many are confused on the next process – especially when to take the transition exam and when to stop doing the maintenance exam.
I have already explained the dates and the transistion paths in my earlier post – Certification Expiration
Here’s another useful chart that explains the Expiration Timeline based on the Salesforce quarterly releases.

How many free retakes are allowed for maintenance exams of Admin and PD1?
You are permitted unlimited attempts on the Salesforce release exams/modules required to maintain your credential(s). There is no cost to retake a release exam/module. So relax and attempt again. FYI, the latest maintenance exams of Admin are Here and PD1 Here
(Only exception is Pardot Consultant and Specialist Spring ’17 Release Exam – 3 attempts only)
