My daughter gets minimum 10 hours or sleep every night. She falls back a sleep in the car for the hour drive into the city. She complains she is always still tired. She even falls back to sleep for the hour ride home. Her teacher has told me ahe isn't "all there" for school. Is 12 hours not enough sleep for a 9 year old? What cold be wrong? Should she go see a doctor? If you have any information please let me know. I'm not sure what to do.

Thanks in advance

I would get her checked out. If she is getting 12 hours sleep a day and still falling asleep or seeming sleepy at school, there may be some underlying issues. It may just be a lack of iron, but you should get it checked.
