After completing the main story, you can now rematch the Gym Leaders and fight their new and improved teams. To rematch a Gym Leader, simply go back to their city and speak to them to issue a challenge. You don’t have to take the Gym Test again, so don’t worry about that.

By the time you complete the main story of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, your main team should be somewhere around level 50-70. As such, the Gym Leaders’ new teams will reflect that, and their Pokémon will be somewhere in their 60s. Be prepared for a fight!
