try this, it worked well for my GTX970.

go get the latest linux x64 drivers from website, save the driver and then do the following steps.

start terminal

sudo -i
dracut --omit-drivers nouveau /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) --force
systemctl set-default (boots into a text only mode)
login as root
dnf install kernel-devel-$(uname -r) gcc dkms acpid
cd /directorywhereyousavedfile
bash NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-??????.run (driver version number in place of ??????)
Accept license, say yes to DKMS and 32 bit library installation. If running in secure boot EFI, you will be possibly need to make a digital key.  I do not fully understand that procedure, so I disabled secure boot in my bios and did not have to do that step.
systemctl set-default

Does that imply that drivers have to be reinstalled after every kernel update?

nope, the dkms will automatically update to new kernel. only time drivers will change, is when nvidia releases a new one.
