Hull Crown Court heard Groves, a caretaker at Hull Collegiate School, became angry and abusive after encountering Mr Lumb as they both tried to make right turns on the same junction narrowly avoiding a collision.
Groves turned his wheels, deliberately driving into Mr Lumb.
The impact forced Mr Lumb to the ground and he suffered cuts and a swollen knee.
Groves, of Kingston Avenue, Hessle, failed to stop at the scene and was found guilty of careless driving.
Groves was fined £350, ordered to pay £500 costs and given nine points on his licence.
