An apprentice motor mechanic has been fined for hooning in Horsham.
Jakob Marcus Hemley, 19, pleaded guilty in Horsham Magistrate's Court on Wednesday to improper use of a motor vehicle.
Magistrate Peter Mealy convicted and fined Hemley $150 and ordered him to pay $43 costs.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Belinda Ryan told the court that a witness saw Hemley driving out of the University of Ballarat Horsham campus car park in Baillie Street at 5.10pm on May 1.
Sen Const Ryan said Hemley accelerated his car heavily, with the rear wheels losing traction with the road for about 10 metres.
Sen Const Ryan said Hemley was in a 40-kilometres-an-hour speed zone, with a childcare centre and Horsham College nearby.
Police impounded Hemley's car under anti-hoon laws.
Mr Mealy said if Hemley offended again he would lose his licence.
