Device Drivers Basics -- I want to write test cases

Hi Everyone!!!
This is the first time I am posting in this forum and am very excited about it, looking at the high activity here.
I am new to linux and right am at the stage where I know a few basics of character device drivers. I am looking for a linux device driver that I can study and for which I can write test cases.
I searched on the net, but there didn't seem to stuff particularly directed at newbies like me.
Could someone please help me out with this?
Thanks in advance!!
