According to Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English,
"tired of (doing) something" means bored with something, because it is no longer interesting, or has become annoying.

If I drive for a long time and become tired but I am not bored with the drive, can I say:
"I am tired for driving."?

    No; almost anything else, but not for!

    I’m tired of driving
    I’m tired from driving
    I’m tired from the drive
    I’m tired of doing the driving
