You can start Google ChromeDriver WebDriver server as shown in this tutorial.

1. Open a command line window and run ChromeDriver.exe. You see ChromeDriver WebDriver Server is running and listening on port 9515.

C:\fyicenter>\fyicenter\selenium\chromedriver\chromedriver.exe

Starting ChromeDriver 75.0.3770.90 (...-refs/branch-heads/3770@{#1003}) 
on port 9515

Only local connections are allowed.
Please protect ports used by ChromeDriver and related test frameworks 
to prevent access by malicious code.

2. Run the WebDriver "GET /status" service with the "curl" command:

C:\fyicenter> curl http://localhost:9515/status

{
  "value": {
    "build": {
      "version": "75.0.3770.90 (...-refs\/branch-heads\/3770@{#1003})"
    },
    "message": "ChromeDriver ready for new sessions.",
    "os": {
      "arch": "x86_64",
      "name": "Windows NT",
      "version": "10.0.17134"
    },
    "ready": true
  }
}

As you can see, Google ChromeDriver WebDriver server is ready to use.

You can also use JMeter or other HTTP client tools scripts to run WebDriver services.
