I’m on probation in Idaho and can’t provide urine samples in the 45 minute time period without it being diluted due to a shy bladder. Is there any other form of drug testing I can ask for so I can comply with the requirements for probation.
That's not how a person ends ends up with a diluted sample. If you mean they are telling you/making you drink extra liquid while you are there, that isn't really a solution for "shy bladder." Liquid intake is a solution for a lack of liquid in the body, not an inability to urinate with another person present.
Your terms and conditions of probation are contained in your sentencing document and any agreement you signed with the probation office. Ultimately, your judge has authority over most of those terms.
The best way to avoid UA problems is to plan the UAs. I usually tell clients to call first thing in the morning. If they are supposed to do a UA that day, PLAN FOR IT. If they can't get there until 3pm, stop drinking lots of liquids at noon, or so. Or do the UA first thing, without using the restroom after getting up. A person who has to UA should show up at the testing center ready to piss a river. That's what judges would do if they were on supervision.
The only time I've known of anything like a 45-minute time limit it has involved the window in which a person must give a sample after reporting to the testing center. The solution to that is to not report until you are ready and able to give a sample.
You could ask about other forms of testing, but they don't have to work with you, unless you have a medical condition that a doctor will put down on paper.
