You need to call your probation officer ASAP to inform them that you missed the test. Your PO may have you just re-test and be done with it.

If you do nothing, the testing place will notify your PO about your no-show and you'll get violated. How quickly will depend upon the size of the PO's caseload. It could be days, it could be weeks.
