In most cases Cherry GT is correct -- there are three attach points. If you have rivets you can drill them out -- just do it slow and be prepared for the rivets to spin with the drill bit.

My front license plate holder is actually installed with machine screws (10MM head) -- maybe you'll be lucky too.

Either way if you remove it you'll have to fill the holes with something -- best is probably simply to fill them carefully with bondo, sand them carefully to avoid marring the surrounding paint, and then use touch-up paint to cover them the best you can.
