ASUS DRW-24B1ST OFFSET
If I was worried about this, I would simply set the drive offset to 0, extract a known CD as a reference, and then see how far off the audio was from the expected position. I could then set the offset accordingly. I guess I have the luxury of owning a drive with a known offset in order to create the reference though.
Normally you only need to worry about drive offsets if you are extracting a CD where the mastering engineer has really pushed the start markers right up to the start of each track. Most mastering engineers actually allow a gap of 5-10 CD frames between the start marker and the start of audio specifically to allow for players that don't position themselves accurately. So these offsets are pretty much irrelevant with most CD's.

How do I make this test? With what tools?

From which resources you took the information about the offset of your drive?
