First, if you had a qualified dui attorney on your case, call them, as they will be in a much better position to answer your question. With that being said, DMV does not always enforce their own rules. When they don't enforce the it is the result of an oversight, and therefor often difficult to predict what DMV will do. While I certainly don't suggest you drive to such an appointment, you may consider applying for your license without the interlock installed. If they decline to issue you a license, have somebody else drive your car to have one installed. Good luck.
