    a regular drill just turns, a impact driver turns with a rotary torque applied, a hammer drill turns with lateral force in a straight line

    Paul has had a go but he's not quite right. Regular drill correct. Hammer drill incorrect. A hammer drill applies high frequency blows to the chuck and bit which makes drilling hard materials such as masonry easier. An impact driver can mean a drill with 'roto stop' that can drive a chisel without rotation. Or it can mean a tool dedicated to work on car nuts/lugs with a high torque and hammer action.

    A regular drill just rotates the bit at a set or variable speed.

    A hammer drill is the same except it rotates the bit in jerks which results in higher torque applied when driving a screw.An impact driver vibrates the bit up and down (does not rotate) to make a hole in material like masonry.  It uses special bits for this
