In Georgia, They will usually test under the DRE (drug recognition expert) guidelines for field sobriety examinations. However, They don’t have to test for the specific drug itself as there is no requirement for that.

I have 2 duis from over 5 years ago. My license were suspended and i was ordered to take 2 defensive driving courses before reinstatement. Is there a statue of limitations on that requirement? I have had no driving citations or duis since
The statute of limitations does not apply to taking a defensive driving course. Unfortunately you will still have to complete those requirements as they are required by statute to be completed not just by order of the court.
I have been under investigation for driver's license fraud for about 8 years. Knowing that the statute of limitations have been up, these investigators are putting me through the same things. They are not putting the case through the courts or giving me my license, they keep telling me i... Read more »

That is not necessarily true. Probation could submit to the Court a tolling order and if it has been signed his probation would stop or "toll" until such time as he is arrested not the warrants. If a tolling order has been signed there is no way for his probation period to run out.
In order to remotely answer your question we would need way more information. Are you getting help from an attorney? What are the facts of your case? Impossible and would only be able to speculate without at least some information about your situation.
