Yes, you should be able to.

When you fill in your registration application, the CQC will ask you to tell them why you don’t comply, how you're managing the risks posed to patients and when you will become compliant.

They'll only refuse registration if they think patients are being put at risk. However to avoid delays in your registration we recommend that you apply when you are compliant.
