take her to the high school parking lot and let her drive, why would you ask anyone else to help you?

Do they have drivers' ed at CCHS?

Are you way too nervous when teaching her?

If so, you're probably freaking her out.

Have you thought about an Rx for a mild sedative for the duration?

What's not working?
Nothing but time behind the wheel is going to help her over the nervousness, and Jay is right. If you're bad nervous, it's gonna be transmitted. She'll likely freak out. Doesn't really say what the issue is.
The high school parking lot is a good idea. Some neighborhoods, with their turns, and stop signs could help. Just don't dump her in traffic and expect her to even remember where she's going at first. There's a lot of processing going on behind the wheel. It may even take longer than the permit lasts. If so,renew it.
My daughter was nervous enough when she first went on the road, and several jackrabbits would blow horns if she didn't move fast enough for them. This made it worse, so I had Dalton make up 3 'STUDENT DRIVER' magnetic signs. That actually worked. She then got all the room she needed, and other drivers avoided us!
Good luck.

Indeed.

That reminds me. The other day, on the way to Savannah, I passed a red, dually pick up truck with a crew cab. There were four men in the trick, some wooden boxes partially covered with a tarp in the back, and a HazMat sign for "Explosives" on the tailgate.

I got on by them rather quickly. No one was tailgating them either. Where can one buy those placards?
