I have done my ccie sec written on 22 dec 2008 , 1st lab attempt on 30 Mar 2009 .Unfortunately i was not able to get through , I am preparing lab for the 2nd time and hopefully will be able to give by Jan / Feb 2011 . Please let me know if have to give the wriiten exam again ?
Your first attempt at the lab must be within 18 months of passing the written. The next attempt must be within 12 months for your written exam to remain valid. See the following link. Unfortunately, if your last attempt was March 2009, your written exam is no longer valid. You will need to retake the written before you will be eligible to attempt the lab exam again.
Hope this helps.
