The minimun time between shodan and nidan varies between schools. Some schools it is as little as 1 year. Some it is up to 7 years.

It is the association or the club that sets the guidelines there is no universal answer.

shotokan karate right ? well most shotokan karate oraganisations are affiliated to KUGB and JKA , with which you get a red grading licence ? no ? ummm.
well anyhow the rules it states in there are

"Th minimum period between taking !st kyu and 1st dan is six months.
The minimum amount of time which must have elapsed between dan gradings are as follows :
1st-2nd dan 2 years
2-3 3 years
3-4 4 years
4-5 5 years
5th-6thdan 6 years.

Maybe your not affiliated to KUGB ? well i hope i helped a little. good luck with the exams . oss.
