Thanks to the Interstate Compact, most likely you will need to pay all monies due in the other state before you will be able to get a license in North Carolina. Thanks to computers and the internet, they can keep up with you now regardless of where you live. North Carolina is a member of the Compact, so if the state in which you owe money is a member, you will have to pay it before North Carolina will grant you a license. Good luck to you.
