Is this a loanword from French? There driver = chauffeur, which is pronounced similarly.

Anyone knows the word's origin?

Yes, it's from 'chauffeur'.
Dutch loanword, and I guess it was a French loanword for the Dutch.

Other related Dutch loanwords :
'setir' = 'stuur' = steer, steering wheel.
'rebewes' = 'rijbewijs' = drivers license.
