Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.
You can find some detailed information in the What happens if I’ve let my driver’s licence expire? section of the ServiceOntario website.
Here is an excerpt,
Novice licences include G1, G2, M1, M2, M1-L and M2-L licences and in most cases, you cannot renew these licences if they expire. If your novice licence has expired you must reapply as a new driver and pass all the required tests (vision, written and road tests).
Approximately 6 months before your novice licence will expire; you will be mailed a notice of novice driver's licence. The notice will detail the level of licence you have achieved and what will happen if your novice licence expires.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
