Partial Answer:

CARPET.

I am one of four,

The four main types of flooring are:

  • Timber (that includes hardwood, laminate, bamboo and vinyl);

  • Stone (particularly polished, i.e. granite, marble, tile);

  • Cork; and

  • Carpet.

There are also the four most common pets (from carpet): dogs, cats, fish and birds; though for some reason, rabbits are currently becoming popular :P

My anagram could be the floor.

Ehhh, not really its anagram, but more of its definition...

My abbreviation is number five,

The abbreviation of CARPET can be CP which also stands for Chest Pain. There are five main deadly causes of chest pain${}^1$ apart from myocardial infarction (i.e. a heart attack), as that is more of heart pain which only causes chest pain because of where the heart is (significantly different).
${}^1$The link might prove to be disturbing, so beware.

Overall, I am where you can drive.

CARPET.

What am I?

CARPET?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I expected a downvote for this one. This is a close answer, but perhaps I should have saved this for a comment. @downvoter, do you recommend I delete it? $\endgroup$ – user477343 Aug 31 '18 at 3:24
