The General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) is a licensed radio service that uses channels around 462 MHz and 467 MHz. The most common use of GMRS channels is for short-distance, two-way communications using hand-held radios similar to walkie-talkies. Services that provide functionality similar to GMRS include the Citizens Band (CB) Radio Service, the Family Radio Service (FRS) and the Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS). Licenses can be obtained from the FCC. The new lower fee of $65 for the 5-year GMRS License went into effect on September 3, 2015. Any individual in the United States who is at least 18 years of age and not a representative of a foreign government may apply for a GMRS license by completing the application form (either on paper or through the FCC's Universal Licensing System). No exam is required. A license for a GMRS system is usually issued for a 5-year term.
