The DUI should not have any impact on your mother's insurance unless you were in an accident. You will have to obtain insurance through your agent by way of an SR-22.

That would be between her and the insurance company. Each insurance company handles matters in a different way. The best way is to call them up and ask them how it would affect her insurance, if in any way.

It can, depending on the insurance carrier and whether they are aware that you were charged with a DUI while driving the car.

I am almost 100% certain that her premiums will go up significantly, or maybe she will be dropped by her insurer. If she were smart, she would make sure you were dropped from her insurance.
