TypeError: ‘module’ object is not callable error with driver=webdriver(“C:\\Python34\\Lib\\site-packages\\selenium\\webdriver\\chromedriver.exe”)

As per best practices you must not add/delete/modify any of the directories / sub-directories / files created by Python until and unless you are aware how the change is going to effect Python’s behavior.

You need to download the latest ChromeDriver from ChromeDriver – WebDriver for Chrome and store it anywhere within your system. As you are on Windows OS, unzip the binary and perform the following:

  • Ensure that you are invoking:

    driver = webdriver.Chrome() # not webdriver.chrome()
  • Within your program, pass the Key executable_path along with the Value referring to the absolute path of the ChromeDriver.

  • While mentioning the absolute path of the ChromeDriver, either use double back slashes i.e. \\ within double quotes i.e. " "
  • Or use single back slash i.e. \ within single quotes i.e. ' '
    along with the raw r switch as follows.
  • So your code block will be:

    from selenium import webdriver
