So my wife is from the US and finally was able to migrate to the UK. We intend on staying here for a while and eventually moving to the US together. 

She needs to get a licence to make it easier to get around to the shops and such whilst I am at work. I have been having to take her on the weekends. 

I have heard the test is much easier in the US compared to the UK one. She is a bit worried she would not pass it. Does anyone know how they compare?

The US driving test is WAY easier in the US. I say this as a US citizen. I live in both the US and UK and it took me several tries to actually get a license in the UK. It was a hassle.

This is what she was afraid of. I guess she will just need to practice more and take things very slowly. Would you say using a smaller compact car is better? I am thinking it would be for her.

Oh for sure, yes. I think if you do not have one you can rent one for her to practice and take her test in. I don't know how much it would cost but it would be easier to get a feel for things in a smaller vehicle. She will have to adjust to driving on the other side which can be hard at first.
