For motor driver I made my own shield using l293 IC . The l293 IC is a dual h bridge IC and works up to a output of 9v. For higher load use lm 298 IC . The output 1&2 go to the right motor and output 3&4 go to the left motor.

Pins
input 1 to arduino 2
input 2 to arduino 4
input 3 to arduino 5
input 4 to arduino 7
chip inhibit to arduino 3
chip inhibit to arduino 6
vss to arduino 5v
vc to +of 6v battery
Connect the grounds together. And connect one ground to arduino and another to - 6v battery. Solder the IC to the PCB and add some pins at the end ,make sure the pins enter the arduino without damaging it.
