If I’m almost off my 1 year DUI diversion program, is it legal that my information has been leaked to insurance companies?

Recently I have been trying to find a cheaper insurance company. When I received my quote it showed an infraction called “accelerated disposition rehab program”. I was told by the court that no one can see my DUI as long as I comply with my probation, which I have 110%.

Unfortunately for you there is nothing illegal about the fact that you were in a DUI diversion program since your arrest is a matter of public record. Insurance carriers monitor court records which are public record. Thus seems to be the case in your matter.
