Please give some ideas for developing drivers @ beginner level.

The normal approach is to identify a problem that requires a solution, not the other way around.

Exactly. You may want to look around for people who are having problems finding a specific driver; they would be grateful if you could help them out. Of course, you could also get some practise by trying to build your own version of a linux driver that already exists.
