It’s called the Department of Motor Vehicles. When you’re old enough to drive you will go there and they’ll give you either one or two metal things with numbers to put on your car depending upon which state you live in.

@JamesL That’s good to know. I just received a car from my grandfather as a gift, and it was shipped from FL with no place for a front license plate. So this is all fresh for me.

In fact, I just went to the store today to get a license plate holder and screws to get this handled. Your comment that you’ve actually been pulled over for this motivates me to put the thing on sooner rather than later.

Well I am glad I could help.
