It varies widely by location and employer. Most drivers get paid by the mile $.25 – $.45, plus load/unload time and per diem. Then there are the different endorsements you have for your CDL: Hazardous Materials, Flatbed, Tanker, Double or Triple trailer. Each of those endorsements adds to your pay.

If you’re working steadily, 4–6 days out per week, you could earn $500—$1200 each week depending on your load, your experience and your endorsements.
