Elementary OS Loki - How do I install drivers?

I've recently tried Elementary OS (Loki). I'm trying to figure out to install drivers like my GPU drivers, wifi drivers, audio drivers, etc. I've used Zorin and Ubuntu briefly in the past, and I remember that I would usually go to "Software and Updates" to check for drivers. I can't seem to find that in Elementary OS.

Install software-properties-common and software-properties-gtk. Then run it from software-properties-gtk the terminal. I haven't actually used it to install drivers yet, but it will give you those options under the 'additional drivers' tab.
