I've seen this more often than most. Does she drive at all ? I ask, because some people who are confident and comfortable when they themselves are driving and in charge, get nervous whenever anyone else is driving - it's more about not themselves being in control.
In others its either a reflection of a more general anxiety disorder, or a more specific diriving phobia, being scared of road conditions and other drivers, whether or not they're driving.
Its almost certainly not about any specific lack of confidence in you, personally, though it obviously must feel that way.
If she were a horse, I think they're blindfold her, but she might not be keemn on that idea. Especially if there are other indicators of a possible anxiety disorder, maybe she should consider seeing someone for a proper assessment and treatment. Especially if it's particular focussed on driving, CBT ( COgnitive-Behaviour Therapy ) might help a lot.
