In 2008, it was about US$100. The price also depends on whether you make stops along the way. Popular sites along the way include Madaba and Karak Castle.

I would suggest you contact the hotel you are staying and ask them. I hired a driver from a recommendation - he charged over $250 one way! It was ridiculous! I contacted a driver from the hotel I was staying at in Petra to drive us to the Dead Sea - charged about $100 - $110 Sept. 2014 then another driver from there to airport in Amman was about $35 extra! All included tip! I should have done that from Aman to Petra in the first place!!
