Despite being the athlete to secure Team GB's Olympic spot, Driscoll is not automatically entitled to go to the Games as selection trials will decide who will represent Britain.
"I won't change my routines, I'm sticking with what I've done this year. It's about getting the hours done and getting them as close to perfection as I can," added Driscoll.
"Today, there was no point going out and trying to just do an OK routine - it wasn't going to be good enough. I had to try to go as big as I can, to make it as high and as clean as I could.
"I knew in the middle of that move that if I tried to take off, I would have been off the end of the trampoline. That's not a risk that I need to be taking.
"It's not good to not finish a routine in a world final, but I think I made the right decision in stopping."
China's Olympic champion, He Wenna, won the women's gold ahead of Canada's Rosannagh MacLennan, while GB duo Nathan Bailey and Luke Strong finished seventh in the men's synchro final, won by China's Xiao Tu and Dong Dong.
Meanwhile, Britain's men have suffered a setback in their quest to qualify a place at the Games and look unlikely to be represented at the Olympics.
The team initially believed Strong had done enough in Thursday's individual qualifying to reach January's Olympic test event, which offers a final chance to reach the Games.
However, after considerable confusion over differing interpretations of the Olympic qualification rules, world governing body the FIG expects Britain to miss out. A final decision is expected on 30 November.
British Gymnastics performance director Tim Jones explained the confusion: "We have now clarified that the three individual medallists from this World Championship [men's final] are included in the 16 gymnasts invited to compete at the test event.
"Based on this clarification, it is apparent that Great Britain will not be represented at the Olympic test event by an individual male."
Had the medallists not been included in that line-up, Strong would have placed highly enough in Birmingham to enter the test event and keep Olympic hopes alive.
Horst Kunze, the president of the technical committee overseeing trampoline qualification, admitted: "There was a lot of confusion. It should be a clearer system in the future."
