    Usually, you can just drag a file to the trash. Then empty the trash.

    What drivers did you download?

    May be the driver is still in use, try to close (cmd+q) any applications that you suspect are using that driver, and then drag it to the Trash.

    However, if you do this, then whatever application is using the driver will not work if the driver is required.

    Before proceeding, we need the OP to explain what the driver is for to make sure that we don't provide him bad advice.
