yes the subject is "ma grandmère", so the verbs that relate to her that need conjugating* (savoir and aller) need conjugating in the il/elle form. There are lots of helpful websites online (if you don't want to pay lots of money for a book) which explain how to use and form different tenses, and, once you understand the basics, wordreference.com is very useful as you can type in your verb into the French conjugator and it will give you all the conjugations for all the tenses. Practice in French Grammar, for students starting post-16 courses by Michael Gross is quite a good little book which you can get for quite cheap; it goes through lots of grammar with lots of examples. Also Harrap's French Grammar Revision Mille et un points has a lot of grammar in; it is quite clear but not so good for examples/practice as the Gross book. These were the books we got given in class and I found them fairly helpful to dip into from time to time

*conduire does not need conjugating as it follows a conjugated verb (savait)
