I will U-bolt my NY plates to my toe-hook before I drill holes in my bumper.
If that doesn't work out then I guess it will reside in the glove compartment... Hmm, this is quickly becoming a tough nut to crack.

wtf, seriously. ive seen multiple test vehicles with the front license plate taped. you'd think they would at least test it with some bracket and/or screws. i wonder how much putting a plate there will impact aerodynamics and range.

Talked about this with my 1st mile guy. He said that Rivian would provide a bracket/mount that would require drilling the front bumper. I asked him about alternatives like https://customlicenseplates.us/ . He indicated that he uses one on his Tesla and knows a number of people who do and that no one, to his knowledge, has had a problem with that solution in Washington State.
the problem though is where are you going to stick the sticker? there's no flat surface on the front area.
