CDL or Chauffeur's Lic?


I have seen at least a couple of threads on this site as to when a fleet should (or should not) have USDOT #'s on their trucks.
To this end, which of you require your drivers to possess a C.D.L (Commercial Driver's License), or just require they have a "Chauffeurs Type" license? As I understand it, there are different Classifications for CDL's (C-1, etc.) Plus, requiring drivers to carry a CDL creates a lot more paperwork and "hoops" for the business owner. So I wonder how many LCO's just opt to have their drivers carry a "Chauffeurs License"? To this end, do any of you just skate by with the basic "Operators License"?
