The maximum is 8 years, and up to 10 years in unusual circumstances.

Under normal circumstances, the limit is a total of 8 years, which is two four-year terms. But those who serve part of another President's term may serve either less or more than 8 years.

Under the 22nd Amendment, a Vice President or other succeeding President can only serve up to 2 years of the preceding President's term, or that person forfeits one term of their own. They would be limited to four years of their own after the end of the succession term.

Conversely, serving less than 2 years of a term due to succession does not prevent the person from two full four-year terms. So it is conceivable that a Vice president could serve 2 years of the former President's term, and 8 years of his own, for a total of 10 years.

Amendment 22 Section 1 of our constitution states in part "No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once" Notice that he/she cannot run for office more than once IF the service was performed for MORE THAN two years. As an example: the president dies or leaves office for some other reason and he was president until January 30th of his third year. Making a total of two years and 10 days. Now the vice president takes over the job. being that the office of the president is taken over on January 20th the vice president can't possibly serve more than two years of this term, making him eligible to run two times. Two Full Terms of 4 years or 8 years PLUS two years making a total of 10 years.

There is a limit of being elected to two 4-year terms, but it's possible to serve for as long as 10 years. If the person starts as Vice-President under another President, and that President dies after no less than two years into a term, then the VP can run for two more terms beyond that.

The President of the United States is elected to a term of 4 years. A person is constitutionally only able to serve as President for 2 terms (8 years). William J. Clinton and George W. Bush are unable to ever be president again.

Canada

2 Terms, 1 term = 4 years But the current president can be defeated in an election after the first term. Or, If he does something bad, he (or she) can be impeached.
