Types of Truck Driver Pay

Truck driving is an excellent choice for those seeking a high-paying career. Truckers can make more than $66,000 a year*, but the pay structure is often different for over-the-road drivers than it is for other workers. There are several different types of truck driver pay that you may encounter after you earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL), and it’s important to understand what these are and when you might receive them.

Base Pay

Base pay is going to make up the bulk of what you earn as a driver. How your base pay is calculated will vary depending on the type of trucking you do.

Some possible types of pay for truckers include:

Pay Per Mile

The majority of long-haul truck drivers are paid per mile that they drive to deliver goods and materials. This can be calculated based on practical mileage, which is the number of miles in the most efficient route from your starting point to your destination. Other methods include household goods (HHG) mileage (measured from zip code to zip code) or hub mileage (includes all miles a truck drives). These rates are given in cents per mile (CPM).


Hourly pay is less common in the trucking industry, but local drivers or regional drivers with short routes may be paid hourly instead of by mile. This is more practical if the job often involves non-driving tasks such as loading and unloading or interacting with customers.


Salaried truck driver jobs offer consistent pay on a weekly or biweekly basis. Like hourly jobs, these are more common for local or regional positions.

Pay Per Load

Pay per load is less common, although it is offered under some circumstances. This type of compensation is more likely for specialized jobs such as gas tankers, livestock, et cetera. This may be a flat rate or as a percentage of the profit for the load. The latter is often reserved for owner-operators and is rare, but sought-after.

Additional Truck Driver Pay

Beyond base compensation, there are other types of pay that may be applicable depending on the situation.

These include:

Per Diem

A per diem is a daily allowance that helps cover meals and other daily expenses a trucker might have while on the road. In many cases, this is added onto CPM. Per diem pay is non-taxable, so it’s important to know what portion of your pay is considered per diem, if any.

Detention, Layovers, and Breakdowns

Things don’t always go as planned in trucking, and these additional types of pay allow drivers to be compensated when unexpected delays occur. Detention is when a driver is stuck at the receiver waiting to drop off a load. Layovers are when truckers are waiting to get a new load. Breakdowns refer to any issues with the semi-truck that require the driver to stop and wait for repairs. Companies offer varying compensation for these circumstances since they impact a driver’s ability to get miles and earn the amount they want.

Stop Pay

Over-the-road truckers often deliver a full truckload to one final customer. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes a load will include two or more stops. In these cases, many companies offer additional stop pay for every drop-off beyond the first.

Bonuses and Incentives

In order to encourage the best performance, many companies offer bonuses. These may include incentives for improving fuel efficiency, practicing safe driving, passing Department of Transportation (DOT) inspections, and more. Additionally, the truck driver shortage has created a high demand for long-haul truckers and some motor carriers offer sign-on bonuses.

Start Your Trucking Career

If you are looking for a job where you can see more of the country and earn competitive pay, truck driving may be the right choice for you. We can help you earn your CDL and offer job placement assistance. Many of our students have offers even before they graduate and can hit the road right away.

*Professional truck drivers earn a mean annual wage of $44,500 (https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes533032.htm). The top 10% of truck drivers make more than $66,800 per year* according to the 2017 Bureau of Labor Statistics.

A Guide to Local Trucking

When people think of truck driving, they often think of over-the-road (OTR) jobs first. These careers involve transporting freight long distances and drivers are generally out for several weeks at a time. Although these types of truckers are in high demand, this is by no means the only path available to you once you earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL). One option that is appealing to those who want to stay closer to home is local trucking. These jobs involve different responsibilities and a different lifestyle than OTR and may be a good fit depending on your desires and goals.

Local Driving Basics

In general, a local truck driving job involves transporting goods and materials within a range of 200 miles or less. This may be one city, a metro area, or a portion of a state (e.g. Southern Arizona). These jobs may be pick-up and delivery (P&D) for less-than-truckload (LTL) freight companies, delivery truck driving, or transporting a specialized type of shipment. In any case, local drivers are usually home every day and make multiple stops on their routes.

Pros and Cons of Local Trucking

If you are interested in a local route, it’s important to understand the benefits and potential downsides of these types of jobs.

Pros include:

Home Daily

One of the biggest reasons truckers are drawn to local driving is that it will typically allow you to be home every night.

Consistent Days Off

Many local jobs offer weekends off. Even if this is not the case, you will typically have consistent days off each week to spend time with your family.

Routine and Predictability

Local drivers usually have a stable daily routine. Although not everyone prefers this, those who enjoy a more predictable job will generally enjoy local driving over OTR.

Cons include:

Complicated Driving

Whereas long-haul jobs involve a lot of time on the highway, local driving is typically within cities. Additionally, you will usually be making multiple stops a day, which requires pulling into loading docks or parking at businesses or residences. This type of driving can be more stressful for some drivers, especially those who have less experience maneuvering a large truck.

Lower Pay vs OTR

Although this varies based on the trucking company, local jobs usually pay less than OTR, especially for those who are just starting out. This can sometimes even out as you gain more experience and seniority.

Highly Competitive

Getting a local job can often be more difficult. The truck driver shortage affects mostly OTR routes, whereas local companies often have many applicants for open positions. In most cases, it is easier to get one of these jobs after you have some long-haul experience under your belt. Some companies also hire from warehouse positions within the company, increasing the difficulty of landing an open position. 

The First Step to Local Driving

If you are interested in a local trucking job, the first step is earning your CDL. At HDS Truck Driving Institute (HDS truck driving school), we give our students the skills they need to succeed, whether they are interested in OTR, local, or another type of CDL job.

The Different Types of Trucking

Earning your commercial driver’s license (CDL) opens the door to many different career paths. Not all of these have to involve truck driving and you may work as a CDL school instructor, dispatcher, highway maintenance technician, et cetera. Even within the realm of trucking, there is a great deal of variety. Different types of trucking have varying home time, pay, and lifestyles associated with them. There are three broad categories based on the length of routes: local, regional, and over-the-road (OTR).

Local Truck Driving

Local drivers haul freight within a relatively small geographic area. Your workday will usually last between 8 and 10 hours and you will typically be home every night. You may have a dedicated route that you drive every day, or it may vary depending on the customers that need deliveries. Driving can sometimes be more difficult and you will often need to back into loading docks and make multiple stops per day. The major benefit of local truck driving jobs is the consistent home time.

Types of Local Trucking:

Regional Truck Driving

Regional routes are within the radius of a few states. The lifestyle and day-to-day responsibilities are often fairly similar to OTR jobs. Home time will depend on the company, but many regional jobs get drivers home every weekend. This is a good middle ground between local and OTR, both in terms of home time and pay. Dedicated routes are common for regional jobs, which means you will get used to a specific routine of driving. Some drivers consider this a benefit, whereas others prefer more variety.

Types of Regional Trucking:

OTR Truck Driving

OTR is what most people think of when they think of trucking. These drivers are on the road for multiple weeks at a time and travel coast-to-coast. There are some dedicated OTR routes, but it is common to have more variety in what loads you are assigned. These types of trucking jobs have high earning potential and the best truck drivers work hard at becoming more efficient to maximize their pay.

The Future of Women in Trucking

When many people picture a trucker, they automatically think of a rugged man. Although the trucking industry has historically been predominantly male, the number of women in trucking continues to grow. The truck driver shortage has created an increased need for new drivers of both genders, and continuing to welcome more women into trucking is a promising way to meet this need.

More information about women in trucking:

Statistics About Women Truck Drivers

In 2008, 4.9% of over-the-road truckers were female. 2019 data from Freightwaves and the Women in Trucking Association (WIT) indicates that this number has increased to 10.2%. The number of women executives at trucking companies also rose to over 25%.

Why Women Enter the Trucking Industry

There are a variety of reasons women decide to become truck drivers. For the most part, the benefits that attract male drivers also attract female drivers.

Some reasons to enter the trucking industry include:

  • Long-haul drivers can earn more than $66,000 a year.*
  • You can earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL) in as little as four weeks, which is a small amount of training time, especially considering the earning potential.
  • Trucking gives you the opportunity to enjoy the freedom of the open road and see more of the country.

Barriers to Address for Women in Trucking

While truck driving has become more welcoming for women, there are still some barriers. Overall, companies are working to address these and have made significant improvements over the years.

Some barriers and possible solutions include:

  • Traditionally, semi-trucks have been designed for men. Women, who are shorter and smaller on average, may have been less comfortable in these vehicles. Today, more and more companies are considering the needs of women truck drivers and are designing cabs that are more accommodating.
  • Safety can be a concern for female truckers who are traveling alone. Luckily, advancements in security technology, along with the support and advice of women who have dealt with issues in the past, have made it easier for women to feel safe on the open road. Companies are more aware of the unique concerns female drivers and trainees have and are working to improve their experiences. Many truck stops have also updated their facilities to provide more safety and comfort for all drivers, male and female.
  • Some companies still have corporate cultures that are not welcoming to women. The good news is that more and more carriers realize what a valuable asset female drivers are. Like trucking school graduates of both genders, women can benefit from talking to current drivers about the companies they are interested in driving for. This allows them to make decisions using all of the information available.

Our School Welcomes All CDL Students

HDS Truck Driving Institute (HDS truck driving school) strives to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for all students. We can help you get on the road and earning and we offer job placement assistance to make it easier for you to start your career.

Removing the CDL Air Brake Restriction

Earning your class A commercial driver’s license (CDL) allows you to drive vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 pounds or more with trailers of 10,000 pounds or more. This includes semi-trucks, but a standard CDL does not permit you to drive every single type of tractor-trailer. There are two different factors that can change which vehicles you can and cannot drive with your license: endorsements and restrictions. Endorsements are added to your CDL and are “extra” qualifications. Restrictions prevent you from driving specific types of vehicles or under certain conditions. The air brake restriction is one example and may reduce the number of jobs available to you after earning your license.

More information about the CDL air brake restriction:

What Are Air Brakes?

Brakes stop a vehicle from moving by converting the energy from motion into heat. Most smaller passenger vehicles have a hydraulic system, which uses fluid to accomplish this. Conversely, large vehicles such as semi-trucks typically use compressed air instead. This is because, unlike brake fluid, air does not need to be refilled for the system to work. Air brakes are also safer for vehicles of this size and there are typically a few different back-ups in place in case there are any issues.

The Two Air Brake Restrictions

Although many people will refer to one air brake restriction, there are technically two different codes that could be placed on your license. Both of them limit your ability to drive vehicles with air brakes, but they are slightly different and you will need to make sure you take the proper steps to remove both.

L Restriction

If you have the L restriction on your CDL, you will not be able to drive a vehicle with any type of air brake system. This will be added to your license if you fail the air brakes portion of the written exam or CDL skills test. You can also have this restriction if you take the skills test using a vehicle that does not use air brakes. To remove it, you will need to pass all sections of the CDL exam relating to air brakes.

Z Restriction

Taking the skills test using a vehicle that has only a partial air brake system will result in the Z restriction being placed on your license. You will be unable to drive semi-trucks with a full air brake system. To remove this air brake restriction, you need to take the skills test with a vehicle that is fully equipped with air brakes.

We Can Help You Earn Your CDL

At HDS Truck Driving Institute (HDS truck driving school), we can help you earn your CDL and start on the road to a rewarding trucking career. We work with you to remove restrictions, including those for air brakes, so you have more opportunities available to you after graduation. Our program also includes material for three endorsements: hazardous materials (hazmat), tanker, and doubles/triples.

Funding Your Commercial Driver’s License

Commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders can earn more than $64,000 a year* as truck drivers. In order to begin your career driving a commercial motor vehicle, you can either earn your CDL through independent study or by attending classes at a CDL training school. While truck driving school does require you to pay tuition fees, it can be a valuable advantage when you start looking for jobs with trucking companies. It is also possible to take advantage of different forms of financial aid to fund your education.

Here are just a few of the ways you can fund your commercial driver’s license: 

Student Loans

Many students are not able to pay the full cost of tuition for CDL school upfront. Student loans are one way that you can fund your education. A loan allows you to attend commercial driver’s license training now and pay off the loan later once you start earning money as a truck driver. Our financial advisors at HDS Truck Driving Institute (HDS truck driving school) can help you determine which loans you may qualify for and how to apply.

In order to apply for federal loans (also called Title IV funding), you will need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). These funds come from the government and are offered based on financial need, the type of program you are attending, and other factors. Some loans are subsidized and do not begin charging interest until you complete the program, whereas others are unsubsidized and begin charging interest as soon as you accept the loan. In addition to loans from the government, you can also take out loans with private banking institutions. Eligibility for all types of loans is based on the student meeting the requirements set by the funding agencies.

Tuition Reimbursement

Once you find a job with a trucking company after graduation, you may be eligible for tuition reimbursement. This is the process where your employer will pay for some or all of the cost of obtaining your commercial driver’s license. This is usually paid as a monthly amount added to your check. Requirements and specific payment amounts will vary depending on the company. At HDS truck driving school, we offer job placement assistance and may be able to help you find a job that includes tuition reimbursement.

Truck Driving School Grants

Grants are another option that can make it financially possible for you to complete truck driving school. Unlike loans, you do not need to pay back the money you receive from a grant. These benefits can come from the government for those who qualify or may be privately funded. Either way, you will need to meet specific requirements in order to apply for individual grants.

HDS has close relationships with many agencies in Arizona that offer grants to help you earn your commercial driver’s license. These include: Arizona@Work (statewide workforce development), MyCAA (My Career Advancement Account for military spouses), and the Arizona Department of Economic Security Rehabilitation Services. If you choose to complete CDL training with us, we will help you determine if you are eligible for any grants and will help you begin the application process.

VA Benefits/GI Bill®

VA (Veterans Affairs) benefits include specific funds that many of our students have been able to take advantage of. The most common of these is the GI Bill®, which provides benefits for those who served over 90 days of active duty following September 11, 2001. The amount you qualify for will depend on your length of service and character. HDS will work with you and the VA to ensure that you are able to take advantage of any Veterans benefits that you are eligible to receive.

What Does Accelerated CDL Training Cover?

The trucking industry continues to grow each year. More and more trucking companies are hiring CDL (commercial driver’s license) graduates for high-paying truck driving jobs. If you want to earn more than $64,000 a year*, you might want to consider a career as a truck driver.

road, you can also take accelerated classes at HDS Truck Driving Institute that can have you on the road in as little as four weeks.

Passing the CDL Written Test

Starting a career as a truck driver requires you to earn a CDL. At HDS, our program gives you the knowledge you need to earn a Class A and Class B CDL. For the first week of  our training, you will get classroom instruction to help you pass the CDL permit test. This covers basic tractor-trailer safety and operation. The information you learn at HDS also includes training for three different CDL endorsements. This includes Tanker, Doubles/Triples, and Hazardous Materials. The safety information included in these endorsements makes you a more attractive candidate for trucking companies after graduation.

Hands-On Truck Driving Experience

Just because you opt for an accelerated CDL training program does not mean you have to give up on hands-on experience. Even in our accelerated program, our team of instructors will make sure you get time on the road. We will supervise your driving and will help you improve your skills. After you pass the permit portion of your CDL test, you start hands-on truck driver training at our facility. Our skilled instructors will help you get the experience you need to operate a tractor-trailer. We go over basic road skills such as backing, turning, and parking. This is useful both for when you take your CDL skills test and when you are on the job.

What Topics Does Truck Driving School Cover

If you are pursuing a career as a truck driver, you may be considering attending a CDL school. This education will help you obtain your commercial driver’s license (CDL) and learn valuable skills that will be beneficial in your new career. These programs, like the ones available at the HDS Truck Driving Institute (HDS truck driving school), also focus on safety and day-to-day operation. We offer a variety of classes to fit your needs and you can choose from accelerated CDL training or a full professional truck driver program. Either way, you will gain the knowledge and experience necessary for you to succeed on the road.

Here are just a few of the CDL training topics that we cover at HDS truck driving school:

Class A and Class B CDL License

While attending our CDL training program you will learn everything you need to know to obtain a Class A and Class B license. The CDL test has two components: a written test about safety and basic truck operation and a skills test where you must drive a tractor-trailer. At HDS truck driving school, our skilled instructors will work with you to help you pass both the written and skills test.

CDL Endorsements

You can learn more about trucking safety and operation and improve your chances of finding a job with a trucking company by adding endorsements to your CDL. These show potential employers that you know more about specific areas of trucking. At HDS, we include endorsements for Tank, Doubles/Triples, and Hazardous Materials.

Hands-On Road Skills

One of the major benefits of attending an accredited truck driving school, rather than self-studying, is that you can get more hands-on experience driving a truck. This gives you an advantage both during your CDL skills test and when you start your career as a truck driver. Our programs at HDS truck driving school teach you basic road skills such as proper shifting techniques, backing, turning, and parking.

Truck Driving Safety

Since trucks have the capacity to cause more damage than a regular vehicle, it’s important that you understand how to safely operate a tractor-trailer. The trucking industry takes safety very seriously and at HDS truck driving school you will learn the importance of safety precautions. We will help you understand pre and post-trip inspections as well as basic safety regulations for truck driving.

Getting a Job After Graduation

What Trucking Companies Look for in New Drivers

With growing wages and an increasing need for drivers, the trucking industry is a more attractive career than ever. If you are just starting to consider truck driving, you may be wondering how you can get a well-paying job with one of many trucking companies hiring new drivers. You probably know that you need a commercial driver’s license (CDL), but simply having the license to operate a commercial vehicle is not enough to ensure you will get hired for a truck driving job. What can you do to stand out from the many other candidates?

Although you can study and earn your CDL on your own, many trucking companies specifically look for truck drivers that have graduated from accredited programs. HDS Truck Driving Institute (HDS truck driving school) is an accredited school where you will learn from some of the best drivers in the industry. We give our students the skills and certifications needed to obtain a job. Most of our students receive employment offers before they even graduate

Attending a CDL school helps you stand out when applying to trucking companies.


When you apply for a trucking job, recruiters will look for truck driving experience. If you earn your CDL by self-teaching, you likely won’t have spent much time, if any, driving an actual truck/trailer. This is one reason why trucking companies prefer new drivers who have graduated from a truck driving school. They know that graduates of accredited CDL schools have actual hands-on experience beyond simply passing the CDL skills test.

At HDS truck driving school, we make sure that our students have on-the-road experience driving tractor trailers. You will train with seasoned drivers who will help you gain the experience you need to stand out from other candidates. We also work hands-on with trucking companies so you will get real life experience. This will help you understand exactly how to succeed post-graduation.


Another reason trucking companies prefer graduates of accredited trucking programs is for safety reasons. Transportation companies have to insure new drivers and they need to make sure that these truck drivers meet safety requirements. Without verification that a candidate graduated from a CDL school, many trucking companies are hesitant to hire because it can be more difficult to get insurance.

Truck driving school graduates also get hands-on and classroom experience that covers important safety topics. At HDS truck driving school, we make sure to provide you with the safety information you will need to know as a truck driver. Our accredited program teaches students how to meet and exceed trucking safety standards.

Job Placement Assistance

Finding your first job with a trucking company after getting your CDL can be difficult. At HDS truck driving school, we offer job placement assistance. This means that you have
people on your side to help you find a trucking job that matches your lifestyle and requirements.

When you graduate from HDS, we do our best to set you up for success. Our students have gone on to work for some of the top trucking companies in the nation. You could be one of our successful graduates! Contact us today for more information and start on the road to your new career.

Preparing Yourself for Your First Long-Haul Trucking Job

Your first long-haul trucking job may be exciting and anxiety provoking at the same time. Despite careful training and education, it’s natural to have some nervousness about going out on the road for extended periods, hauling large loads and navigating tight loading docks. Preparation is key to having the best possible experience on your first long-haul trucking job. These suggestions will help.

Talk to Your Loved Ones

One easy mistake for new truckers to make is to forget to talk to their loved ones about what it will be like when they are out on the road. Because long-haul truckers can sometimes be away for weeks at a time, the distance is something that can have an impact on relationships, particularly if you are married or have kids. Making a plan for how you will keep in touch and making sure the lines of communication stay open are both critical to settling into a routine that works for you and your family.

Save Time for Staying Healthy

When you’re a trucker, your job is to sit down all day, which can easily take a toll on your health. From the start of your career, make time in your schedule for exercising every day, so you get an adequate amount of physical activity to stay fit and reduce back pain and joint stiffness. You will get sick of eating fast food quickly, so fill your cab with healthy food in a well-stocked cooler to get you through the day.

Be Ready to Make Mistakes

The first long-haul trucking job is hard on every driver. You will make mistakes, as all of the other drivers have before you. Embrace it as both a job and learning experience, and your skill will continue to grow with every trip.

HDL Truck Driving Institute gives you the tools you need to be confident and successful as you build your career as a truck driver. Call our truck driving school in Tucson today at (877) 205-2141 to learn more about enrollment and our training programs.

3 Benefits of Truck Driving School

Why Truck Driving School?

Truck Driving School can seem daunting when looking for a new career, but you can find it to be very liberating and rewarding. You want to make sure you are making the right decision because work takes up a good portion of all of our lives. Here at HDS Truck Driving Institute (School), we provide a variety of programs that give you options on which license you want to acquire. We also offer financial aid for those who are qualified and help you with job placement during and after your CDL training. When trying to figure your future truck driving occupation, you should be looking into the benefits of the job role and the industry. If you are the type of person that loves to travel to new places, earn a large paycheck, and have the flexibility to drive on your time, then being a truck driver is for you.

Now is the time to decide on being a truck driver and discover the many exciting opportunities with great pay. The biggest factor is acquiring your CDL and have the qualifications required to get hired by top trucking organizations. HDS provides the training needed to get started in the industry.

Here are three of the benefits of getting your CDL:

Great Job Security

There is currently a shortage of truck drivers; this increases the demand for individuals to earn their CDL through a truck driving school. With the economy continually fluctuating, finding jobs becomes more and more difficult. It is tough out there, however, finding a role in the trucking industry is currently much easier than in other job sectors. The current economic climate enhances job security in the trucking industry. Take the steps to become your own boss and enroll in HDS Truck Driving School.

Accelerated Education

Many people don’t go back to school because of the time commitment. Life is short and the concept of spending at least 5 more years in school, especially in your youth, can appear daunting and not worth it. Our truck driving school offers accelerated courses that allow our students to earn their CDL in as little as four weeks. Most workers that make what you could be earning annually driving spend at least 2-4 additional years in school. Time will fly by in school, and soon you’ll be flying by on Interstate 10, heading up north.

See the Country

Traveling is on everyone’s mind, a fleeting dream that might happen “one day”. The thing that often stops people from adventuring throughout the world is work. This is because many workplaces only offer a certain amount of paid vacation days throughout one fiscal year. Choosing a high paying career that gives you the opportunity to see the country is one of the most attractive attributes of the trucking industry. It could be just you, your favorite tunes or podcasts, and the open road. You could be traveling across the Brooklyn Bridge, on the rural roads of Tennessee, or through the rocky mountains of Colorado all in the same week. If traveling is in your mind – the world is waiting for you.

These are just a few of the many advantages of going through your CDL Training. Being a truck driver comes with flexible hours, independence, freedom, and a chance to explore places you have never been to. Earn up to $64,000* traveling the country while simultaneously seeing the country. It’s a win-win.
