Exclamation English test requirement for spouse renewal and items of correspondence

Hi there,

I'd really appreciate some wisdom on the topic of English tests.
I am aware for the spouse renewal you an A2 level life skills test is needed, however for my wife's first visa she has passed this section on a B2 level English test from an English school she went to in the UK.
It seems a little pointless to do a test that is 1 whole level lower to prove her English when she's already shown she's more than capable?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
The last thing/problem we have is that we have been living in a family friend's mother's house. We have paid her cash in hand(occasional bank transfers) and she covers all the bills and tax etc. So, when it comes to items of correspondence, we don't have a whole lot.
We have a letter from our landlady stating we have been living together for the past 2.5 years and also a rent book with both, my wife, landlady, and I's signatures. Will this be sufficient, or is there anything else we would need?
Again, I will appreciate any help or advice given.
***The visa is also due for renewal beginning of June, and we're moving to a new property in 2 weeks***

Many thanks,
C
