Can a Florida court order drug testing of the parents when determining custody?

Yes, they can. It depends on whether or not it’s officially plead that there are some substance abuse issues or drug abuse issues going on with the other parent. It could be something as simple as a urine sample or even hair follicle testing can be done before the court will grant any time-sharing rights with the other parent.
