Additional "rules" set after signed agreement.

I recently signed up for a driving school. The agreement that
I signed and sent in with a check for $150 basically stated
accidents happen and they are not at fault if you crash your car
and that's all.
The driving school sent me a confirmation after receiving my
money and signed agreement with additional rules stating
there are no refunds and if I arrive after 9:30am I cannot
attend the school. Well I had a three hour drive from Chicago
and I arrived at 10am where I was greeted by one of the
schools tech's who was yelling, shouting, and being very
unprofessional. He said since I got there late I can't attend
the class and there are no refunds. I tried explaining I had
a three hour drive which did no good. At this point a few
harsh words were exchanged and I drove all the way back home.
I was wondering if the additional rules set in the confirmation
letter are upholdable. I believe I should get my money back
or at least be able to attend another class. Please advise.

Thank You,
From Illinois, problem in Michigan.

Did you contact them in disagreement with the rules in the confirmation letter? Its their rules and you were notified with no complaint you still was going to attend.

Ofcourse you can sue for anything but chances of winning is zip.
