So, I bought these Gedore screwdrivers and they are getting a little rusty where there is no vanadium coating. Is it normal? What can I do to prevent this? They are stored in my drawer and they had no contact with water at all.
Thanks in advance!

The moisture in the air car be enough to rust tools. A coat of some kind of oil will do as other anons already said. Or you could just clean the rust off with light steel wool whenever it occurs.
Thank you, guys. I was wondering why don't they coat the entire screwdriver with vanadium?
I have these pliers and they are all coated with Vanadium.
Vanadium isn't a coating to prevent rust, its in the metal of the tool. Its part of the alloy and is there to add strength to the steel. The 'coating' is chrome. The reason they don't chrome the tips is because use will damage the coating and it will flake off.
