Many students I work with believe that more distance off the tee will significantly lower their scores. Typically the best way to lower scores would be to work on shots around and on the green; however more distance is never a bad thing. If you would like more distance here are a few tips for your set-up and swing with the driver to improve contact, which in turn will increase distance.
The fact that the driver has the least amount of loft and is longer than any other club can make it the most difficult club to hit. Some of the most common “miss-hits” with the driver I see are pop-ups, topped shots, and slices. These problems are typically caused by a steep golf swing where the driver head is moving at a descending angle into the ball. The goal would be to sweep the ball off the tee at an ascending angle into the ball to achieve the best launch angle and to minimize the backspin of the ball while it flies in the air. This goal can be achieved by paying attention to ball placement and also the turn you make during your backswing.
You can practice this anywhere to promote a proper set-up and backswing to maximize your distance off the tee.
