L-plater caught with passenger in boot

An L-plate driver has been caught driving dangerously in a busy area in Melbourne's inner south while carrying five friends - including one in the boot.

Police spotted the 19-year-old learner driver speeding by in a BMW on Chapel Street about 2.20am on Sunday.

After pulling the youth over, they searched the car and found five passengers inside, including one hiding in the boot, Victoria Police spokeswoman Belle Nolan said.

The car was immediately impounded for 30 days, and the North Caulfield teenager is expected to receive a penalty notice.
