Howdy, new 2021 RS. I went to go install the rear license plate after removing the temp tag and don’t see a place for the screws, just these two depressions in the plastic. Is there some sort of mounted bracket that’s supposed to be installed first before the license plate?

This is most definitely something the dealer should have done for you. There is no bracket. There are 4 tiny little indents that are the spots for the license plate mounting. The screws supplied by Chevy are pointy self-threading screws. Did the dealer even give you those? Usually the mounting kit is with the spare tire. You should also have the front plate bracket.

Here's a picture of mine. at the very top of the photo are the screws.

In your photo, I can just see the upper left indent

The Luke legend,
First welcome to the forum. I have never understood why manufacturers don’t supply a rear bracket. At the least, there should be some type of replaceable inserts provided. A little too tight and the hole is enlarged. Making the plate not as secure.
Is that an adhesive residue where your plate should be?

Welcome to the forum. Something does not look right, looks like they used some two sided sticky tape instead of drilling? You can go to walmart/autozone etc and get a license plate screw kit for a couple of dollars.

No bracket for the front, just drill 2 holes where the indentations are. We used some stainless screws with nylon locking nuts along with a silicone license plate holder.
