If I go to two different clinics to do a HVP test will they know it is the same person requesting the test because the DNA proves that it is the same?

Most likely they'll do a test that only id's if a high-risk type is present, not exactly which one. Even if they do a genotyping test (one is now approved for clinical use) it would only offer a "yep, this or that type is here or nope, it's not" kind of answer, nothing unique that would allow one sample to be matched with another re: the individual from whom it was taken. There may be other ways that labs and insurance companies communicate about who had what test when and where, I don't know, but nothing specific to your own DNA that would indicate that.
