Thank you I just turned 40 last May and my points dropped considerably for the age, another option I'm also considering is Canada, they don't have age limit or should I say a bit lenient when it comes to age but might need to do IELTS for the English test.

katnissany tips po for looking/buying for secondhand cars in ACT?
sorry for the super delayed update: Nov 2017 we were looking for cars, Dec 2017 we bought our secondhand car. Bad experience: We initially went to a Holden dealership, as they were selling a brand new car within our budget (we were ready to pay cash). But from the start, the sales guy was already rude. Went to Toyota and we felt like we weren't really taken seriously that time. Good experience: We found a dealership (lennock) and bought a secondhand car instead from there. We fell in love with the car after the test drive and also because the salesman was really friendly and explained things in detail to us. Almost 3 years na sya and only one had major fix needed. I think we're just lucky po that we got a really good car. :)
