US Driver’s License renewal while in Taiwan

My New York State driver’s license expired almost 2 years ago. However, it can still be renewed as long as it’s within the 2 years of expiry. It can only be done online if I’m in the US which I’m obviously not. I should have done this a while ago but stupidity and laziness got the best of me.

Does anyone have experience renewing their US license while in Taiwan? I tried contacting the NYS Department of motor vehicles but can’t get a consistent answer. I have a US mailing address, but it’s no longer in NYS.

I was thinking of perhaps trying to get a Taiwanese driver’s license but the question then is will they accept my expired NYS license. Again, has anyone dealt with this before?
