    He can't read or write well either or He can't read well or write well either.

    1) He can't read or write well either

    2) He can't read well or write well either.


    Which one is correct?

    Can I use 'well' two times in one sentence? or should I use ' well' only once?

    As an NES but not a teacher:

    Yes. I would try to minimise using words twice in a sentence.
    I would probably have said:
    "He can't read or write [English] very well."
