His first stop in men's football was TuS Paderborn-Neuhaus (today: SC Paderborn 07) in the Oberliga Westfalen. In the 1987/88 season, the 17-year-old made his debut in the Oberliga. The very next season he became the league's top scorer with 22 goals. Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund brought the right-footed player on board in 1989. Driller had his most successful time in the mid-1990s at Hamburg's Millerntor with FC St. Pauli. From 1997 onwards, he played for 1. FC Nürnberg, where he was increasingly unable to match his earlier performances and ended his career for the time being in 2004. At the beginning of 2005, however, he returned to active football and moved to SpVgg Bayreuth in the Regionalliga. There he immediately became a key player, scoring eleven goals in 18 games, but after six months he moved to FC Ingolstadt 04 in the Bayernliga. After he and the club were promoted to the Regionalliga Süd, he finally ended his football career. There was another retirement in 2008 when a sponsor signed him for the Bavarian Bezirksoberligist 1. FC Hersbruck, where he played together with Thomas Ziemer.
