access=destination excludes only transit traffic. For private driveways access=private is better,

as owner may grant access to whoever (s)he wishes and access is not assumed OK without 

permission from owner.

Note that there are also cases of driveways accessible to public, I would not tag them asaccess=private (typical in for example rural areas).
