Although i have not looked into his height at great detail.
Johno said on 19/Mar/17
Ummm, i will hedge my bets at 6'1.5 as before.
HonestSlovene said on 19/Mar/17
He looks like a classic strong 188 cm guy to me that would look 191 cm to people who upgrade their height.

Rob, is Jim Jarmusch still 6ft2?
He looks nowhere near it in those photos with Adam
Editor Rob: it is quite doubtful
berta said on 9/Mar/17
:O how can they be listed the same ? there is atleast 4 cm beetween them in the photo that means that even angles and fotwear and posture can not make that. there is atelast 1,5 cm beetween them in realiy.jim 187 and this guy 189.
said on 8/Mar/17
Jim Jarmusch probably 6'0.5
berta said on 7/Mar/17
i think he is a guy that on good days is 189 in the efternoon but most days fall about 3 -4 mm under ut

Interested to See what they DO with his CHaracter in Ep. 8. I hope he won't be as Immature in the next one. Plus with the Injuries to his face they can make him hopefully look a bit more gritty. AS Far as his Helmet, I don't think it adds as much height as the Vader helmet would. Maybe In his Kylo Ren costume he hits 6'4".

I really don't see michael shannon over 6'3 if adam driver stay 6'2 and dax shepard look too tough to be taller than driver
Mark(5'9.25") said on 1/Feb/17
I'd be shocked if Driver measured under 6'2"
said on 27/Jan/17
Rob, is a potential upgrade to 189 cm possible?
Editor Rob: I haven't ruled 2.25 as a potential mark, but that would be the limit for me.
S.J.H said on 25/Jan/17
Adam Driver generally look to have 11.5cm eye to tip of head than most 6 feet plus guys have normal 12cm eye level but he have a long head that cover his high eye level advantage. So i would say 189cm and might be a guy like brandon routh and dax shepard who look 189+ than just flat 189cm. A fraction always put a difference. 6'2.5 is a concern
Mark(5'9.25 said on 22/Jan/17
If Driver had a normal head, he would easily be a 6'3" guy.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 21/Jan/17
@S.J.H Driver tends to have a high eye level, but really looking at the top of their heads, Shannon was taller than Driver because I checked it out again and the bald part of Shannon's head was higher than Driver's thick hair.
However, I still think 189 or 6'2.5" would be better because Driver looks too tall to just be 6'2" flat. Driver easily gives a taller impression than most listed 6'2" people.
S.J.H said on 21/Jan/17
Honestly i have see he doesn't look shorter than dax shepard. He is either 189cm or 190cm same as dax shepard and no problem with footwear. The picture with 6'3.5 michael shannon that have disadvantage footwear for driver i bet most people didn't check out properly.
Jordan87 said on 17/Jan/17
Mark ( 5'9.25)
Correct about Driver's eye level. If he had a Normal size head he would clearly be taller than Shannon who would seem to have an extra big noggin.
I know someone that saw Driver at one of these conventions, and was way too far to judge height but said he noticed Driver did not look lanky at all and was actually quite muscular. In Force Awakens he did look on the lanky side to me, and in pictures as well but this fella I know claims Driver is actually pretty well built.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 15/Jan/17
Rob, how likely is 6'2.25"? I think Driver could fall in that range.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 12/Jan/17
Liam also had terrible posture and still managed to edge out Driver by the top of his head, so I can't say driver holds 190 cm. However, I think 189 cm would be better for Driver. He isn't under 6'2".
Rob, is there a possible chance of an upgrade to 189 cm for Adam Driver? After seeing him with neeson and Shannon who edged him out by the top of their heads, 6'2" seems too low for this guy.
S.J.H said on 10/Jan/17
kolojeskei said on 3/Jan/17
yh only 1 ish cm shorter than neeson
Mark(5'9.25") said on 28/Dec/16
Adam Driver's eye level is higher than Michael shannon's eye level and Liam Neeson, but Michael shannon and Liam Neeson edge out Driver by the top of their heads.
I would bet 6'2.25"-6'2.5".
berta said on 26/Dec/16
his body looks 188 to me but sometimes beside other actors i think he looks more 189. maybe he is in beetween 188,5 i my guess
Mark(5'9.25") said on 24/Dec/16
Driver is very well a strong 6'2" person despite having a shy posture.
I would argue 188/189 cm for Driver
Tom said on 11/Dec/16
Dha95 Going by the full ensemble pictures, Driver looks like he could have some footwear advantage over Neeson. Plus he looks a good inch shorter than Michael Shannon(going by the top of their heads) who is listed at the same height as Liam. I'd rule out 190cm and over. Although 189cm is certainly not impossible and he certainly isn't under 6'2".
Jordan87 said on 8/Dec/16
Its SImilar to Christian Bale. When he was Cast as Batman he was listed at 6'2 all over. Now He is listed at 6'0, and Most people think he is 5'11 and some change and not quite the 6'0.
Adam Driver has a Small Head, and Long Arms and Legs. So He appears taller than he is. If i Saw a picture of him, without anyone to compare him to I would think he was a 6'3 guy.
said on 6/Dec/16
I guess he might be 190-191cm.
Look at this recent picture with Liam Neeson who is listed as 192cm.
He doesn't look 4cm shorter than him. Also, he is noticecably taller than Jim Jarmusch, listed as 188, although he might have lost some height.
Anyway, he doesn't look much shorter than Neeson.
6ftBen said on 4/Dec/16
It's mad to think that right when he hit the scene around to the time of the announcement of his being in Force Awakens he was getting 6'5" listings. Now he has people on here saying he might not be 6'2". It's like Vin Diesel all over again although he is a lot taller than him.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 3/Dec/16
6'2" is fine, but 6'2.25" isn't impossible for Driver. However, Michael Shannon looked taller than Adam Driver by the top of their heads.
Jordan87 said on 30/Nov/16
Average guy Jarmusch's age should only lose an Inch tops. Doubt that Fellow was ever 6'2 Since there are times I dont even think Driver looks over 6'2 and he has him by 2.5" inches at least there.
Tom said on 25/Nov/16
@Rob Dang, if he really was 6'2" in his prime, he's certainly lost quite a bit of height because he looks 5'11" in that picture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Nov/16
Jarmusch looks well under 6ft2. In fact he looks to be struggling with 6ft even!
said on 21/Nov/16
Hey Rob, is there a way to explain this picture with Jim Jarmusch who is also listed as 6'2"?
Editor Rob: Jim could be a bit shorter nowadays, plus a little bit lost in posture?
Tom said on 16/Nov/16
@Mark Shannon looks more than an inch taller if we're going by the top of their heads. I think 6'2 is probably okay for Driver.
said on 14/Nov/16
Actually, Shannon did appear taller than Driver by an inch. He just has a low eye level compared to Driver, but looking at the top of their heads, Shannon is taller.
That still puts Driver at near 6'2.5" rather than just 6'2" flat.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 12/Nov/16
6'2.25" isn't impossible.
Sarah said on 10/Nov/16
Mark said on 7/Nov/16
Edit: I would have straight out either believed 191/189 or 190.5/188.5.
said on 25/Oct/16
Rob, which one of these is most likely?
Editor Rob:I'd rule any argument between C and A could at times fit him.
Paleman said on 16/Oct/16
Looks to be only a bit taller than Domhnall Gleeson in most pics. I'd say 6'2" is a good fit for him, can't see him taller than that.
Jordan87 said on 14/Oct/16
Mark read what I said , technically his eye level is higher than 6'2 guys but he is shorter Jc of his small head. Pics with Shannon highlight that . He has the proportions of a 6'2-6'2.5 guy but he is really 6'1.5 -6'2 by of his very low head.
josh jeffords said on 9/Oct/16
I doubt this guy is as tall as he looks, only saw him on Force Awakens and in BIG boots and 70s hair he looked 6 3 .
So that sounds like barefoot maybe 6 1 and maybe a half he didnt look much taller.
It is tough though as stated below he like most tall guys has weird posture not sure if it makes him shorter or taller.
For all you perspective folks yes he did look 6 3 when fighting the small storm trooper guy and Raye or whoever the cute new Jedi chick was.
said on 4/Oct/16
@Jordan87 I doubt 6'1.5" for Driver. He always projects illusions of him being taller than just flat out 6'2". He massively towers Daniel Radcliffe and is an inch taller than Domhnall Gleeson.
Driver does similar to or is slightly taller than Dax Shepard. Driver has an inch on Corey Stoll.
Jordan87 said on 3/Oct/16
I think He has a really high Eye Level. I think he could be 6'1.5 but his Eye level would line up with someone who is 6'2 or taller.
Mark said on 30/Sep/16
I'm fighting 6'2.5" for Driver. He always gives a really tall impression even when I didn't know about him.
Mark said on 26/Sep/16
I think when someone is really tall, it's hard to adjust your posture because they don't want to come off as clumsy and falling all the time.
There are very few actors who are 6'0", 6'1", or even 6'2" person that have really good posture.
said on 25/Sep/16
Rob, any thoughts on this?
I think Shannon is leaning more and Driver has a footwear advantage. What do you think Rob?
Editor Rob: I think 6ft 3.5 and 2 are ok fits for both.
I wouldn't have said Driver has more sneaker there, Shannon's hairstyle is probably a little thicker.
We could argue fractions above/below most listings, because you could find instances of someone looking taller or shorter.
The more visuals available, the easier it should be - in theory - to form a better guess.
said on 21/Sep/16
Rob, does Driver fall in the category of a solid 6'2" person or slightly more?
Editor Rob: he certainly can look a decent 6ft 2 at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/16
189cm isn't impossible.
Jordan87 said on 19/Sep/16
His Character is refereed to as 6'2.5 in the Star Wars Database ( 1.89 Meters) if that is any Help. I think he has a very small head and low Cranium so he strikes me as the type of person that May be eye level to a 6'3 Guy but his head would come lower since it is so Small. If I were going to be conservative id call him 6'2.
Mark said on 15/Sep/16
I could buy 6'2.5" since he did edge out Shannon with slight bigger footwear. The 6'3" claim isn't far off.
Jordan87 said on 13/Sep/16
Christie is not 6'3, Look at her page on this site she is something like 6'2.5", The picture shows her very blonde beautiful hair is at the 6'3 mark, not her head. She is for sure taller than Him, even without heels. He is 6'2. Not like he is short but I dont think he gets the full 6'3.
Ghost said on 3/Sep/16
Adam Driver is 6'3. Ridley and others say 6'5 so often because he's even bigger in costume/boots.
Hunches over often, awful posture intentionally, bends his knees habitually for shorter people. Probably a throwback to his time in the Marines (you don't want to stand out or tower over a superior).
Christie is around the same height, often wears 3+ inch heels and is never more than a few inches taller than Driver in his regular dress shoes.
His character on Girls said he's 6'3 twice (play rehearsal scene, "who else is 6'3 at 12 years old", and later at an AA meeting when a woman asks "how tall are you, 6'2?" "6'3"). Multiple interviews as well.
Solid 6'3 if he'd stop crouching next to people. He comes across as very shy for such a big guy.
Rose said on 15/Jul/16
The height estimates for this dude are all over the place. TVTropes put him at 6'4", Daisy Ridley mentioned in an interview "He’s what? Six foot five and however many pounds. He’s a big, big guy.", and some Star Wars fans even said (very prematurely) in forums that he was 6'5"! I think 6'2" is a good starting estimate for him, but he seems to be very good at projecting height - he's also often with short co-stars, and he's a pretty bulky guy. But 6'2", maybe a half/quarter inch taller, seems correct for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/16
"Adam Driver's Height: 6ft 2½in (189.23cm)"
Jordan87 said on 13/Jun/16
He Looks Shorter Than Shannon by an Inch in most pics I see.
Mark said on 23/May/16
That fact that he edges out Michael Shannon with really thick footwear means that Adam Driver could be over the 6'2" range and a weak 6'3".
Rob, do you think it's possible for Adam Driver to appear 6'2.25" or 6'2.5" in the morning? I know that might sound a bit too far but he seems to edge out Michael Shannon with suspicious footwear.
Jedi Master 5'11 said on 20/May/16
@Matthew Robinson those photos of him next to two 5'10''-5'11'' actors make him look wayyyy shorter. Cameras these days man
Mark said on 18/May/16
Anything in the 6'1" range is lurdicous. He stands tall with Shannon and seems to edge him out with really really THICK heels.
Grant said on 15/May/16
Fraction over 6'2 possible?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Apr/16
Strong 6ft2/Weak 6ft3 in The Force Awakens
Spencer said on 19/Apr/16
He looks a weak 6'3 in Force Awakens.
Jordan87 said on 4/Apr/16
SomeGuy, Yes Id say 6'2 I more accurate then 6'1. 6'1 seems a tad but too low for this guy.
said on 3/Apr/16
Adam driver with Michael Shannon: Click Here
188 cm seems fair for him.
Eric said on 29/Mar/16
I'd say he's 6'1
Mathew Robinson (190 cm)
said on 24/Mar/16
6'2" is fine I guess, but I definitely wouldn't go over it next to Colin Farrell
said on 21/Mar/16
Harrison Ford Nowadays is the same height as Daniel Craig and Billy Dee Williams in recent Photos ( Rob Has billy D. at 5'10 in his pic.) Driver is only 3" on Ford in most pics. Driver is 6'2. Not 6'3. Driver also is about 1.5 on Gleason who doesn't seem a full 6'1. Id Say driver is maybe 6'1.5-6'2.25 Range.
Ford and Williams ( Williams is 5'10 with Rob)
Ford ( 5'10.5) and Driver
Id Say ford, Is midly taller than Williams ( proven 5'10 nowadays) so call Ford 5'10.5. Driver has Ford by About 3.5 Inches, so Driver 6'2.
S.G said on 14/Mar/16
His character in Girls mentions that he's 6'3
said on 4/Mar/16
Rob, is a slight upgrade possible?
Looks similar to Dax Shepard and edging out Corey Stoll
Editor Rob: at times he has looked 189, other times I think just 188 seems a good enough fit.
Tom said on 2/Mar/16
Maybe it's his build and the fact that he tends to be share the screen with shorter actors, but still, I can't see this guy being just 6'2" flat. I'd say 6'2.5" is more likely.
Tom said on 2/Mar/16
It's hard to judge the height difference when Kylo Ren has his mask on whenever they're onscreen together.
Sam said on 1/Mar/16
Between him and 6'1" listed Domhnall Gleeson, I can see maybe an inch between when Driver is standing more straight, oddly enough there didn't seem to that much difference in their height in The Force Awakens, maybe Gleeson sometimes just has better posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Feb/16
6ft2-3 range, IMHO
S.J.H said on 31/Jan/16
I guess the 6'3 listing was more like he was 6'3 with shoes and 6'1.75 barefoot but he look more like a legit 6'1.5 guy. At times he look dipping into a strong 186cm but more 187ish
said on 29/Jan/16
Editor Rob: he can look it at times yes.
Jim Hopper said on 24/Jan/16
Next to jimmy kimmel hes at least 3" taller
MD said on 4/Jan/16
@Johno, Boyega has a page on here. While I've argued he's shorter than his listing, he's certainly not under 5'8".
Johno said on 30/Dec/15
A height between 6'2 - 6'3 for Driver seems pretty unlikely.
Johno said on 30/Dec/15
Seen Star Wars, brilliant actor and brilliant character.
In terms of height, i would be confident in saying that he is between 4.5 - 5 inches taller then Boyega.
Boyega at first seemed around 5'8ish to me but i got a feeling he might be in the 5'7 region.
Driver gave a pretty tall and slender impression to me in the movie, i believe he is ~ 6'1 though. Anywhere between 6'0.75 - 6'1.5.
6'1 would be a good starting estimate.
Jordan said on 17/Dec/15
Christie also isnt standing straight is the pic i posted. She also can look 6'2.5 with Rob, Not a full 6'3 herself.
said on 17/Dec/15
This Pic Kinda tells all. 6'3 Christie in heels looking 6'6, Driver 6'2-6'2.5, Gleason 6'0-6'1.
Jim Hopper said on 16/Dec/15
Id say hes a weak 6-3" imo,more than 6-2" for sure
Jordan said on 16/Dec/15
IM Surprised this guys' height isn't talked about more. I am Pretty sure his height was a key factor in why he got the role in Force Awakens. He is supposed to mirror Darth Vader in many ways, a tall dark sider. Prowse in his peak was anything from 6'3 to 6'5, Driver looks more the 6'2 range. With Domhall Gleason is is only 1" to 1.5' taller making him 6'2-6'2.5, tall enough for the role I guess. Prowse had him by about 30 pounds it would seem however.
6ft 4 dude said on 8/Sep/15
Yes...i agree. 6ft 2 is pretty accurate.
said on 26/Jun/15
More 6'2 Flat.
Rob, Colin Farrell no more than 5'10 and is in Sandals here. Driver looks about 4 to 4.5 taller but has a certain footwear advantage.
[Editor Rob: I don't think he has a footwear advantage...those are converse style, and sandals could be anywhere in 0.5-0.8 range themselves.]
Sam said on 29/May/15
Didn't see this guy slip in there with a page, I've seen him in a couple things now, yeah, I'm convinced he's more 6'2.5" than the full 6'3", basically a strong 6'2" guy.
Jordan said on 4/May/15
Where are you getting that information From? He is listed at 6'2, 6'2 1/2, and 6'3. I have not seen that measurment and honestly he looks in the 6'2.5 range.
Stronggamedude13 said on 29/Apr/15
Adam Driver is officially 6'3 1/4 (191)
said on 22/Apr/15
He has Good Posture here with Ben Stiller( 5-6, 5-7) and he has a Solid 8.5 Inches on him.
He is an Easy One to Place. His Range is No Shorter then 6'2 and No taller Then 6'3.
Rob, He is listed at 6'2.5 in some places and I would say he isn't less than that, but not more than 6'3.
Jon-o said on 22/Apr/15
This guy has terrible posture. But he is a very strong 6'3" even so. There's enough imagery of him with other noted actors now to verify that.
said on 1/Apr/15
With Domhall Gleason who is at least 6'0 1/2. Driver looks Solid 6'2 if he stood straighter. I would say 6'2.5 is where he tops off, not a full 6'3.
Rob he is also listed at 6'2 some places. I cant see him lower
Topps said on 19/Jan/15
He looks to have a very long head which may make it appear he is only 6'1-6'2"
