The test to drive is around what is basically a go kart track.
Reality is many people get their license before the really learn to drive,
This is why Australia and many other places won't swap a Thai license for an Australian one. you have to sit a new driving test, (Note Thai tourists can drive in Australia, but up to 3 months only)
(the practical isn't hard on a go-kart track) the written they should know.

Also, in LOS if you're someone "special" you don't even have to test. My wife was issued her license before she even knew how to drive! (She's a civil servant, and that meant more years ago than it does now.) The usual order with my Thai colleagues seemed to be: 1) buy a car, 2) learn how to drive, 3) get a license.
Have your gal drive around a mall, as Migrant suggests. I did my first driving in Thailand on country roads with little traffic, just so I could get a feel for driving on the left. (At first it feels a bit like looking at a mirror image, and it really threw my spacial judgment off.)
As to driving safely in the big city, I still worry about that. Too many Thai drivers simply act as if they are the only ones on the road. You have to pay 100% attention all the time, and especially watch for the many motorcycles. Last month I'd signaled and was making a right turn in the intersection, when out of nowhere came an idiot on a mo'cy - honking his horn as he raced past me on the right! Why didn't the $#@% pass me on the left as he should, the stupid piece of buffalo dung?

At the end of the "TEST" she handed over a few notes to the examiner and got a pass certificate.
Me and my mate were in stitches of laughter but she looked at us stone faced and said "No,No! I not pay tea money, I just pay for damaged cones"

火 Conquer like the fire
山 Steady as the mountain

I'm just the reverse, easy looking over my left shoulder but always feels strange the other way. I've had little trouble adjusting to driving on either the right side or the correct side of the road, I get to practice both on a regular basis, at the moment anyway.
I notice with my teenage kids that very often their friends come calling, in their own cars. These are 15 and 16 year old. Car provided by the parents, no paperwork, no worries. If anything happens, just pay up. It's only a couple of k for them, so what?
So when should I start to teach my kids to drive?
Shit Happens In Thailand. It's a recursive acronym.

No wonder the road toll is so low
