The system compatibility report in Premiere Pro scans your system and lets you know if you need to update your drivers. Use the instructions in this document to update your Nvidia drivers for macOS.
If you are logged in as a Guest or Standard User, you cannot install the driver. Some organizations do not allow users to regulate what they install and manipulate system and application settings. Contact your system admin for help with installing the driver in such a situation.
