The average pay for a stunt driver is $38,250 a year. A new stunt driver usually makes $25,000 to $31,000 annually. Drivers with a great deal of experience often earn more than $50,000 a year.
Stunt-driver salaries vary depending on how well-known the driver is and how established he is in the industry. Salaries also depend on whether the stunts are being performed for a movie, television commercial or a live show. A CNN Money report from 2005 states that highly skilled drivers often earn a six figure income. Very dangerous stunts pay better than those that are relatively safe.
