Application driver not accessible

I have an application driver that I can insert into the linux- kernel, but when I run other application to call this driver in the kernel, it seems like the call can not access the driver. After inserting the driver, do I need to do anything to make it accessible?

need a lot more information. Distribution? Not know which distribution you are using try disabling selinux temporarily, look to make sure the device is being created in /dev.
