Is there a preferred programming language for working with webdriver?
For a newbie to programming which language would you recommend I choose for this situation (webdriver and newbie programmer) ?

There isn't any particular language that would be best for any framework. The tools and language used depends upon the organization you would work for ,thier policies and thier exposure to that languages or tool.
Looking from a personal growth perspective, the best thing is to start searching for jobs in LinkedIn and other job sites and analyse there job descriptions. Find out which is the most common tool and programming or scripting languages that are in demand.
According to my experiences,
Selenium + c# : is being used in few organisation and there is a limited human resource availability. If you learn it then you could be pretty sure to find a job pretty fast.
Selenium+Java: is the most used . But, even though there are plenty of job opportunities available, there isn't any talent crisis. Most people who start selenium will go with Java and this create high competition.
Python is being used in India as part of QA but in Europe it's more of java.
The best thing to do is to , analysis the job market and find the skills that are in demand, and prepare yourself on that.
Note: The job market and skill demand varies according to your location.
