How much German does one need to understand the VKU for the driver's license

Hi all,

I've been in CH for 11 months now, I just completed my TELC A2 and my first aid course in English in Basel. So I'll be taking the next steps for the driver's license soon. However I live in Canton St Gallen and I have yet to find a place to do the VKU in English. Considering that it's currently taking place over 4 nights I'm not able to do it in Zurich as I am a waitress who gets paid per hour so I can't take of off work not can I commute every night for the 4 nights. So my question is if someone managed to complete the VKU with minimal German?

Otherwise I'd just put everything on hold until I can attend the class in German or something.

Thank you in advance.

Almost everything they teach is based on common sense and no interaction with anybody is necessary. Just do it in German and sit through it. That's what I did couple of years ago.
