It's up to you how you represent the relationship. In the database you need the extra table but in your C# code you have a choice. Normally you wouldn't have a class to represent the join table but that's up to you. You can just have a Car class and a Driver class where the Car class has a Drivers property that is a collection of Driver objects and the Driver class has a Cars property that is a collection of Car objects.

In the UI, again, it's up to you how you represent the relationship. You might have form for a Car that allows you to select Drivers from a list on that form or a popup dialogue and the analogue for Cars of a Driver and that's normally how it would be done but it's up to you. Think about how other software that you've used works and think about how you would want an application of this type to work. It's your app so it works how you want it to work.
