You have a 2 year grace period. Relevant info highlighted below:
What ballistic said! I will also make note that there is no longer a fee to renew your Armature License if you go directly to the FCC website.
I got mine through cross training with the medical reserve. I would normally have a HAM assigned to me if one was available but I decided I'd rather have my own comms if needed, so when the chance came up I got my ticket. I have a Baofeng portable that I keep with some support stuff in a Maxped bag, and I have a Yaesu 3700 in my jeep. I'll develop my equipment some more when I get time.
I guess I forgot to post this here but I snagged this a week or so ago and it might be the best Toy that I have ever had!
It has a 52' Pneumatic Mast!

KG6RDD here. Keep a Kenwood TH-F6A with me at the flying field and desert trips.
Man EZ, you have going to be a big hit on the annual Field Day !!!
KE0XXX, since it's easy to find them, I'll only post part of mine, had my ticket a little over a year, debating about getting my General license
Taking my Technician test a week from tomorrow. A crazy amount of stuff to cover for a 35 question test. I was pushed into HAM because my Jeep club requires it now, but I’ve been looking for a reason for a while now.
I picked up a cheap BaoFeng UV-5R to get my feet wet until I pick up a better mobile rig. I’m sure that this will be another hobby rabbit hole that I will go down and end up getting the advanced licenses and better equipment.
Jeep is still a bit dusty from the trail run this weekend.
Ham for a Jeep club to go off reading seems to be overkill to me. We always used CB radios.

Well ham is a lot clearer and you can pick up a BaoFeng for $20. If you’re just listening, you don’t need a license. If you have a big enough group, the guys at the back can have a tough time hearing the leader with a CB when running the mountain canyons around here.
The other advantage, personally, is that there is a lot of Utah that doesn’t have cell coverage. If you are off in the backcountry it is good to have that ham option.
Either way, it's great having a method of communication that's free, minus the initial cost of the equipment.

Technician's License - Yaesu FT-60R handheld...
Wait till you go for a General Class or Amatuer Extra class. I'm prepping for my General in a few months.
It depends on the club. Two years ago I went out with a mixed group, 7 rigs, I've got CB and HAM, someone else had GMRS, 2 others had CB, one guy has a HAM but no license. The Nissan group I'm part of is mixed, a few have all 3, but most have either HAM, CB or both. Currently I have a fixed mount CB, I carry a Yaesu handheld, I'm planning to get my General license this summer and also add GMRS. There have been few decent backcountry rescues in Colo. that happened because someone had a HAM license.
For anyone with a General license or planning to get one, the FCC question set for the General license changes in July of 2019.
“Feng” are so tempting that it hurts!
