This one is online and offers Spanish. I don't know of any human-run ones! Being San Antonio, though, you would think that would be a popular offering.

Thanks, but I doubt I can use an online class, I'm on a webtv unit, not a computer. I'll be on this unit till at least august. I hate it.lol

That's what I was wondering... I have a lot of stuff in English and French from up the road in Canada but I doubt that'd be much help since defensive driving has a lot more to do with driving up and down mountains and in the snow.

Ok, just throwing this out there, and please don't throw stones back...but why in a second language when all our traffic signs and such are in English? Just asking honestly.

Actually, having lived and driven in several countries where I had limited language skills; you'd be amazed at how little you need to know to understand road signs. The toughest was Belgium, where town names would change depending on which part of the country you were in (i.e. in the French-speaking Walloon, the big town closest to us was known as 'Mons;' but in the Dutch-speaking Flemish regions only 12 miles north of the city, it was called 'Bergen').

Cheers! M2

If I remember correctly, I believe Rhodes driving school had a bilingual class. It's on the south part of town, but that's generally where they are going to be since it's that area is more fluent in spanish.
