One thing you might do if you haven't thought of it already: Before I was allowed on the road my parents took me over to a large empty parking lot (we used the high school's when school was not in session) so I could get used to starting, stopping, accelerating, turning, etc. without having to deal with other cars around (they drove over and back). Especially with learning on a stick shift, this might be a good way for her to get more comfortable with the mechanics of handling the car so that once she is on the road she can concentrate on not hitting things and obeying the rules of the road rather than figuring out how the car works.
