If your probation was a deferred adjudication and you are revoked/adjudicated, then yes.

There is a license suspension for any drug conviction. A successfully completed deferred adjudication is not a conviction so there is normally not a license suspension. If you screw it up bad enough to get revoked/adjudicated, then it turns into a conviction, and then the license suspension kicks in.
