DC Motor Driver Compatibility

Hi, I am fairly new to hardware stuffs and electronics, I have a question regarding my project. I am building a robot tank with 2 dc motors and would like to ask if the dc motor driver that I am using is compatible.
Please check if the motor driver can take up the dc motor and battery that I am using. Thanks!

The specifications look compatible, assuming that you intend to use the 3 x batteries in series for 11.1V. The quality of second-hand batteries is always suspect and they may not be able to provide the current needed for motors but that’s something you will need to test.

If I am going to connect the dc motor module to my Arduino Mega, I have to connect it to 3.3V rather than 5V right? Thanks!
