Testing for STDs

The character I'm writing about is male, has been sexually active with several partners of both genders without protection and his parole officer tells him to get tested (long story) so I would like details of how a test is done. What is usually tested for? How are the tests done?

This might just be that I'm not good at googleing, but I can't seem to find any info on how a usual testing round for STDs is done... if anyone has anything, including some good search phrases, I would really appreciate it.

EDIT: I've got what I need now. Thank you so much to everyone who replied. Awesome answers & just what I needed!
