A good site to start is: http://www.arrl.org That is the national association for Amateur Radio.

Getting a license requires a written test, given by volenteer examiners. The test has 35 multiple-choice questions that are selected from a pool of a few hundered questions. There are three license classes, each requiring a test element. Study materials can be obtained from the Arrl website, or a local amateur radio store (if one is in your area). There are some materials you could get online for free, just look around. You'd want materals to study for the "technician" class of license, as that is the entry-level.
