No, you do not need to install the drive belts to start the vehicle up. Just make sure the timing belt is installed correctly and if there is any washer to hold the belt from sliding, make sure it is installed. If it starts up, let it idle for about ten minutes just make sure it runs okay. If it is good, then put everything back together with the drive belts.
