Heath Vosper, 44, of no fixed address, was found guilty of attempted grievous bodily harm with intent when he appeared at Maidstone Crown Court on Monday 9 March.
He was also convicted of theft and one count of dangerous driving.
On 3 December 2013, police received a call from a store in Westwood Road in Broadstairs saying that televisions had been stolen and the offenders had made off in a black Vauxhall Vectra.
The car was then seen at a drive-in in Minster with patrols parking a police van across the exit to stop the car. When a police officer started to walk towards the car, Vosper - who was driving - revved the engine before aiming the vehicle straight at the officer.
The car hit the officer and he was thrown into the air, carrying him around six metres. The vehicle then left the scene at speed despite the impact of the collision damaging the windscreen.
The officer received injuries to his head and shoulder as a result.
The black car was later stopped along the A299 near Herne Bay and Vosper and two other occupants were arrested.
When interviewed by police, Vosper said he had been trying to drive past the police van and only realised afterwards he had hit the officer.
"The officer who was injured during the incident was simply trying to carry out his duty and uphold the law and there was absolutely no justification for Vosper’s actions", said Investigating Officer Detective Constable Gary Stamp.
‘During that day, not only did Vosper endanger the life of an officer, but his dangerous driving along the A299 put other motorists at risk and fortunately he was stopped before he could cause any more harm.
In addition, Vosper was sentenced for theft, dangerous driving and two counts of assault with intent to resist arrest, dating back to November 2013 and all committed in the Metropolitan Police area.
The other two occupants of the car were sentenced last year.
