CB Radio in your vehicle, but if you want to transmit further you should have a Ham Radio. If you like the idea of the ham radio, you will need your ham radio license. There are 3 ham radio licenses you will need depending on what bands and power you may want to use. Here are the 3 licenses below in the order you must take them.

My advise is to purchase the ARRL Study Manuals and learn about Ham Radio. I know some individuals like to just memorize the questions and answers. The problem is when you need to answer someone or do something you will most likely get stuck. So it is best to do the studying and learn the subject. Who knows who you may help in the future with their path into the Ham Radio Hobby.
There are plenty of other excellent Ham Radio Study Books that are really good. One of the popular set of books are by Gordon West. These books have some excellent study material and have a unique way of getting someone to learn as well as remember the material. I have some of these that I bought way back in the day from radio shack, but today's would be much more up to date. Yes there are other books that provide tons of excellent information for studying.
The final place where I have seen some excellent information are on youtube videos. Some of them give you clues as to the questions that point to answers. There are other youtube videos that have some awesome information with good study information about all the various subjects you will need to know. So start studying today and have fun in the Ham Radio Hobby.
