DWI statute of limitations

I received a DWI in the state of North Carolina (Wilmington), in December 1991. I hired a attorney locally who worked the case and I paid all fines and court costs. Recently I tried to renew my drivers license in Mississippi and was denied because they said I had an unpaid ticket in North Carolina. I contacted the DMV in North Carolina and they said I had not completed my substance abuse counsuling and driver training or paid a $75 DWI fee. It has been a long time but I do not recall being informed that I needed to attend this counsuling/training back in 1991. I have renewed my drivers license three times since 1991 and nothing was ever mentioned about this incident. Now the state of Mississippi will not renew my licence until I complete this training. Is there a statute of limitations on this ?
