...are drivers ... not driving at the moment still drivers?


If you mean the golf club most often used on tees, yes. If you mean the 
skilled operator of cars, no.

There's a difference between self-identification (I am a skilled driver 
and identify myself as a driver) and identification of a person by an 
ongoing act they are performing (the people now passing my car at 85 mph 
are drivers). Was trying to highlight that distinction.

I have a driver's license. When I'm using my bicycle, I am a biker. When 
walking, a pedestrian. When walking to a movie, still a pedestrian ... 
only more so.
