I'm not sure what you mean by "bios drivers". If you want to update the bios just follow the instructions accompanying the update. You shouldn't have to do anything else.

If the PC is runnin fine no need to update / flash BIOS...

Many paperweights and boat anchors have been created this way

your mobo manufacturer will have a list of current BIOS firmware updates.
in the change log for the ones more recent than your current one, see if there are any new features, fixes or improvements that would benefit you, otherwise there'll be no reason to flash your BIOS to the latest version.

I'm not sure what you mean by "bios drivers"  After a new pc built you have to install some  drivers,some of them are for the bios.
These are the drivers i mean.After a new bios version do i need need extra drivers for it?

There are no "bios drivers". There are motherboard / chipset drivers and perhaps that's what you're thinking of? If so, they are independent of the bios. Anyway, as is pointed out above unless there is a specific need or reason to update the bios you're better off leaving well enough alone.
