Only if I think she's a vaguely competent driver. I would assess this based on looking at the appearance of her car as well as on experience in the passenger seat.

Can she drive? Is her car all beat up? Rims?

I would let her drive in comfort and economy.

I've been trying!

She's too scared to go WOT on the highway - she only gets about 3/4 of the way down before she eases off in fear.

My wife feels the same way; she knows I love my car and is thus too scared to drive it.

She's actually a great driver - I'd like to get her familiar with the controls just in case.

It's either she's afraid - or she's jealous of it and hates the thing. Can't always be sure with females...

I told my girlfriend she needs to learn a double clutch first. So that takes care of that.
