Open the Settings app then go to Sounds > Do not disturb preferences > Add more > Driving.

Slide the switch to the On position, and tap on the Do not disturb button just below it to customize what is and isn't allowed to break through DND mode.

According to Google's support page, DND will automatically turn on after your phone connects to Bluetooth in a car, or the phone detects movement that would indicate you're in a car. The feature will then turn off after 30 seconds of walking or 10 minutes of no movement.
