    I would like to activate driving mode every time it connects to my car's Bluetooth!

    the manual says you can add the car's bluetooth to the location services. I have done this.

    but how do I tell the phone that each time it senses me in the car it goes into driving mode?

    How about an NFC tag attached to your phone dock?

    I assumed that, but NFC tags are a way of getting the phone to do things when they are near them. They could probably turn on car mode for you (I say probably, because I haven't tried it).
