Generally, in order to get a drug test Ordered by the Court, you must file a Motion requesting the drug test. However, if drug testing has already been Ordered as part of the probation, generally you could contact the probation officer and request the testing to be done. If you did not want to file the Motion on your own, you can contact an attorney and the attorney should be able to file the Motion requesting the drug test. If you were to just call the Courthouse as you state in your question, generally you will only talk to someone who may be able to put you in the right direction, however, they generally cannot accomplish what you are seeking...generally only a Judge can do what you are seeking. Additionally, in order to get the Judge to Order the drug testing, the motion seeking the drug test must be filed (unless, like I stated previously, it already is part of the Order because of the probation and then you could try to contact the probation officer)
