Control DC motors with an ULN2803

I live in argentina and getting thing shipped here is a mess, so I try to use whatever is available here (which is rather limited) whenever I can.

So I was wondering since I haven't found any of the typical H-bridges ...is it possible to control DC motors (speed + direction) with a ULN2803? These I can buy here. 

If so then how would that setup be? Do I need any additional components? If so then which (transistors, resistors, diodes etc)?

I googled it a bit and I only saw examples of STEPPER motors being controlled with these ICs.
