GMRS licensing is simple is based on the individual - just like a ham radio license, but with the added benefit of it extending to your family.

MyGMRS.com has all of the information you'll need to get started.

GMRS 101 Putting aside the dry wit and sarcasm, it's a good Intro to GMRS YouTube video.

If that video and so many others convinces you, then work your way through the FCC license process which is made simple at:
How To Get A GMRS License – Easy Guide To GMRS Licensing

Actually, not like a HAM license which requires a test. GMRS needs no test, and is more like a fishing license -- pay $35, wait a few days and you get an email with approval and a callsign. Really simple.

Been a licensed ham radio person for decades now, but I've really not been able to find much to enjoy about it for many years. I still have a one lonely HT but that's it.
