After being captured on dashcam video flying through the air after colliding with a roundabout, the irresponsible motorist was given a driving restriction.
An A11 roundabout was vaulted by 18-year-old Ryan Lamb in his van, sending the car spiraling through the air.
After denying operating a car dangerously, the juvenile from Beck Row, Suffolk, was convicted guilty of dangerous driving at Norwich Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
On September 1 of last year, Lamb crashed his van on the ‘Stag’ roundabout on the A11 near Attleborough while en route to the Sundown music festival at the Norfolk Showground.

A silver Citroen Berlingo van was seen speeding down the dual carriageway in the frightening video.
When the vehicle strikes the cambered edge of the roundabout, Lamb, who was 17 at the time of the accident, fails to stop and soars into the air.
He was given a 12-month driving ban and told to take an extended retest, pay £310 to the CPS, put in 80 hours of unpaid work, and pay £85 in victim surcharges yesterday.
Sentencing him, chairman of the bench Jim Agnew said: “Your driving fell far below the expected standard of competent and careful driving.”
Lamb, who was unemployed at the time of the collision, had only been a driver for three months.
Earlier, 35-year-old biker Andy Daynes said he was “shocked” to see the collision while travelling behind the van and recording it on his helmet camera.
Andy, of Hingham, Norwich said: “I was actually on my motorbike behind him so I saw it all. I pulled over along with some other drivers to see if he was OK.
“It is quite a bad roundabout, he just didn’t see what was coming because he was going so fast.
“The driver had a few cuts and bruises but the ambulance came straight away and took him to hospital.
“He just didn’t see the roundabout coming.”
