ICBC would pull every last baby boomer off the road if they felt that driving standards had been altered to such a degree. The basics are basic for a reason, if you're in doubt, go to a licensing centre and get (not sure if they are free anymore) a test/instructional/rule book for her to analyze.
360 check before departing from a parking spot, mirror and shoulder check before changing lanes, can't get much simpler than that. Hand positioning is questionable, I was taught to use 10/2 or 9/3 based on the age of the car. As long as you aren't stupid enough to hold the wheel with one finger tip during the test, you should be good to go.
