You can go here to find out where your closest local exam will be given next. Here's more information on the Level 1 Technician license. I think it is $5 or $10 to take the exam, and the license is good for 10 years. Once you pass the Technician's license exam you will have privileges to talk on the frequencies that the Baofeng UV-82 has, plus you have a few other frequencies on High Frequency radios (not included in the Baofeng UV-82). HF radios are what I talk on much more often with my General license because they allow your signal to go hundreds and even thousands of miles.
t takes a little while to catch on to how to program it, but if you use a cable like this one with a computer, it is much simpler.
Here's another site with a LOT of information on the UV-82 . This guy's information is extremely helpful to find out more! These videos would probably be helpful on programming and features as well:
