The plate is zip tied to that black rubber piece. The rubber piece has tails on it.I don't doubt that, but I can take off my license plate in under a minute with an electric drill. It probably takes longer to pull the elastic bands out.

To screw & unscrew the plate every time a different car is taken out is just not feasible. Just think about it. You have multiple test vehicles and multiple drivers. All taking turns testing one or more vehicles at same/different times. You also have a limited number of plates allocated to you by the government (usually less than the number of vehicles you would like to have plates for). Would it even make sense to fiddle with a screwdriver/drill every time someone takes a car out? Logistically, it would be a non-starter. It's much easier to just grab a plate on a plastic clip (mostly likely on a rubber strap), clip it on to the tailgate, close the rear glass, then go.
By the way, this is the same method used by a car dealers when you go do a test drive. Sales person gets a plate on rubber straps, hangs it over the trunk, close the trunk to hold it in place. Instant dealer license plate for the test vehicle.

They just opened the rear gate, placed those tails over the top, and closed the gate (sandwiching the tails of the late holder in between the gate and the top).
A few seconds, tops. No tools needed.
