It definitly is a bit of a lottery!
I learned to drive here 12 years ago and all I really learned was how do pass the test, rather than how to drive (my parents taught me to drive, so i knew what I was doing when I first got in the car, the instructor was very surprised when I got in and knew what to do with a clutch)
I believe they are only allowed to pass a certain amount of people a day, so your daughter should try get there early for the test, and hopefully be one of the first few to do the test.
As for the speeding, it is common practice to allow 20km/h more than the road signs say, however for the test, I would stick to what the road signs say, just to be on the safe side. I wonder if the instructor is telling her to 'speed' to test her?
