I am making an exception to the rule of making the correction itself, since Gian has done it superbly.
So, I am just going to express my opinion on that one.
You certainly paid for your lessons, and that meant the Driving School had thought of every and all possibilities. So, it´s the Driving School that should foot the bill with the extra expenses for (it seems) it was in the contract (or at least it was implicit in it.)
Unless the issue (and the additional cost) was specifically foreseen in the contract when you signed it.
You should not agree on getting the behind-the-wheel training (without simulator), but then you couldn´t think this would happen.
Plus, you were in a weak position to question the driving school manager, so you could do it "after getting your driving licence" (if it is what you meant - it is what I got from your account.)
Next move then, is to get some partial refund by the driving school (it can be administratively, then legally if necessary). It can be time-consuming, but then you do a service to other students...
It´s up to you, eventually, to let that little money go down the hole (and perhaps to avoid some headache) or go for it.
DETRAN, in this case, seems like setting a "little punishment" meant to the driving school, not the student driver, though.
