Getting manual restriction removed for a newbie

Hi I got my CDL A with a manual restriction. What had happened was I paid 1800$ for the manual version to get my CDL A license. Everything was good got 1 hour a day of training but only 5 days before my test I have never driven a standered vehicle before in my life. Yes I grinded the gears like crazy the last day I got a little better , then the school tells me we’re gonna reschedule your test because it doesn’t look like you’ll pass. So they threw me into the automatic program when I already paid $1800 and I told them that i paid for the manual course. So they were going to charge me more for it and I couldn’t afford it. Tested in automatic transmission passed. All of the jobs in the oil field I’m craving are manual transmission trucks though. So I’m wandering what the best way to get the most manual transmission training with bigger chances of success?? What could I do differently?
