Interlock devices are part of the sentence. You cannot get around it.

You have not completed your sentence till you have the interlock device installed. The suspension lasts toll you comply with the whole sentence.

Not only can you not appeal it, you can’t get a license until you have installed one (after you complete your ten year suspension).
It is hard to understand the question. If the interlock is the only issue the MVC, in my experience and Icoukd be wrong, has not enforced the interlock requirement while suspended. They will enforce it after. If you are suspended 10 years you need to do the time. After buy a junk car and install for the time period. Don't drive without the interlock. It is a bother but one you can live with. Criminals have records you do not have a criminal record. Criminals have parole you do not.
If your offense occurred was prior to the enactment of Ricci's Law, the sentencing judge may have had a choice between ordering an ignition interlock device or the suspension of your vehicle registration privileges. You may be able to ask the court to change your sentence to avoid the ignition interlock requirement.
