No, if you need an interlock--that is, you have been ordered to have one--it would have to be installed on the company vehicle for you to drive it: it's not merely that you need to install one on your personal car, but that you can't drive any vehicle without an interlock. The law does not let you get around your requirement to have an interlock simply by driving a different vehicle belonging to someone else.
