Unless you wait 7 years and then you can retake them. But, why would you do that?

I think you mean "Caribbean", not crabian. Yeah, for sure if she passed the real exam then she can't retake it. However, I know some Caribbean schools let you take an internal exam, usually one of the NBME's, then depending on your score they have you study more. This is not the real deal though, it's just something given by the school.
