The 18-year-old is understood to have lost control of the black Fiesta as he travelled along the main street in Kinross.
The vehicle came to a rest in the garden of a property in Queish Place, Kinross, at around 8.50am on Thursday.
The driver was uninjured and issued with a penalty for careless driving.
Posting online, the driver’s mum said: “This was my son this morning on his way to work in Kinross. He lost control at the bend and panicked and flipped his car he’s not been driving long and thankfully no one has been hurt.
“The owners of the house will no doubt get a shock, unfortunately we were not able to get in touch with them this morning to let them know what happened.
“Thank you to whoever called the police and acted quickly.”
