Hello,

Have you been discharged from probation? If not and you are still under court mandate, then generally the answer would be yes. You could involve a lawyer and get before the judge to eee if this type of intrusive test is necessary and if some less invasive test could be ordered. But unless the decision to test you is without any real basis, a judge would likely agree with the testing.
