I don't think this is possible.
What you could do is to use Signability Tool to see if the signed driver pass and in that way the driver should work perfectly..hmm their's no such as 100% though [;)]

Here are some links regarding handling drivers.
The first one will have a link to "Download the Driver Signability Test", seems you got to mail Microsoft now to get hold of this tool.

You can now use INF2CAT (Winqual Submission Tool) instead.
