They will indeed


If you insure the new car with them, yes. Good luck.

The mere act of buying a new car will not alert your insurance company that you have had two DUI's in 5 years. It is likely that they were alerted after your license was suspened after at least the second DUI. If you don't have insurance now but will be applying for a new policy ( not just switching autos on and existing policy) they they will likely ask you if you have had any Traffic violations or convictions for DUI or license suspensions. There is also a good chance they will run your driving record if you are a new customer.

Your insurance company will find out in either event.




The application will lilely require you to disclose that information, be careful not to misstate anyyging as it could lead to additional charges of ibsurance fraud
