You don't need hook scripts for normal operation. They provide additional control over subversion repository and user actions. There can be many cases when you would need a hook script. For example, to enforce strict locking of files or to stop users from committing their changes to Tagged code etc. However, to start with, you can do just fine without implementing any hook script. It is not mandatory to have hook scripts at all and your server/client should work fine without them.
