For most of us, Money is often a priority when considering a New Career. After all, Money keeps food on the table and affords us opportunities to better ourselves & others around us. The Truck Driver Shortage is affording us more opportunities in the Professional Truck Driving Industry than ever before.

Factors Effecting Wage Potential

Safety Bonuses: Carriers offer an array of bonuses depending on the type of driving position. Bonuses are typically incentives for drivers to drive their best on the road.


Mileage: Drivers in training earn on average $.27 per mile where Professional Truck Drivers earn up to $.45 per mile. Performance-based incentives such as mileage offer excellent opportunities for Driver trainees to earn extra experience skills & earn additional cash!
