I don't how the statement could mean that. When it mentions an
arguments passed to the test driver, this is not referring the
arguments passed to "make".

Q: From the reading it looks like there are options followed by non-options
on the command line. I guess my confusion is that the options (--options)
seem to be command line options.
Q: Are there other ways to pass options to a test driver? 
Q: How can you select one of perhaps many, test drivers? 
Q: If there are many test drivers how can you select many, but not all, of
them, "make [options] driver1 driver2 check"?
