A typical new driver will make between $30000-$40000 a year. After about two years you could be make $60000 or more per year. But first you need to get that experience. Find one company an stick with it for at least a year. Don't jump around from job to job. Employers don't like to see jump from job to job.

Owner operators can make over $150,000 a year if you get with the right company.
