46 year old Andrew Day had previously lost his licence after being caught behind the wheel while disqualified when he purchased a Ford Mondeo.
Despite having no licence or insurance, he began driving the vehicle back to his home in Landbeach but crashed into a Ford Fiesta at Thriplow 35 minutes later.
With the other driver trapped Day climbed into his friend's minibus, which had been following behind, and made off from the scene.
He pleaded guilty at Cambridge Magistrates' Court to a number of motoring offences.
He's been sentenced to 20 weeks, suspended for 12 months, given a 12-month supervision order, ordered to carry out 80 hours' unpaid work, pay £80 victim surcharge and £135 court costs.
He's also been banned from applying for a licence for 18 months.

A police force has become the first in Britain to allow officers to smoke e-cigarettes.
The electronic inhalers have been banned by some organisations amid fears they're still bad for health.
They turn a liquid solution into safe smoke and contain a small amount of nicotine, but not the dangerous tar.
Cambridgeshire Constabulary has now decided that staff can smoke them, saying their benefits outweigh the disadavantages.
A force spokesman said: "Following discussion which considered both pros and cons of both visibility and health it was agreed that use of electronic cigarettes would be permitted on police premises although not in front-facing areas such as enquiry offices."
However Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge has banned e-cigarettes from their premises.
