Not VAT-registered: can I still get a van?


I am driving a Volkswagen Polo at the moment, but I'm going to sell it as I am a carpenter, but get a lot of jobs on the side as well so I need a small van for tools and stuff. I am not VAT-registered so do I need a VAT number or can I just tax it anyway without it?

Thank you
