Running 16.04 and have an Intel WiFi card.

Right now it loads the Generic Intel driver that comes with the OS.

I have downloaded the latest driver for my card from Intel and extracted it
to /lib/firmware

How do I force Ubuntu to load the driver?

It does not show in the Additional Drivers section of the Software Update.
