The relation of drift velocity with electric field is given by

v_d=\frac{Ee}{m}\tau

 E=\frac{V}{l}

Therefore

v_d=\frac{Ve}{lm}\tau

Where 

vd is drift velocity, V is the potential difference applied across the ends of the conductor

l is the length of the conductor, \tau is the relaxation time and e and m are charge and mass of the electron respectively.
