Clean Install? Yup
You can clean install the second beta as well. I will only recommend this route if you are having too many problems with the first beta. This involves a lot of things and legwork, and all the details about it can be found here: How to Clean Install iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 Beta on iPhone and iPad
Download Without a Developer Account? That is Possible too
Even though the iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 betas will be available to the public for free some time in July, but you can download the developer beta for free without spending a dime. It's a simple case of downloading the iOS or iPadOS 14 configuration profile onto your device and you will start receiving updates immediately. But the problem is, it's not an official method of installing updates, and there is a lot that can go wrong. And furthermore, you have to search for the configuration profile online yourself, for obvious reasons. But if you are interested in this method still, you can find more details here: Download iOS 14 / iPadOS 14 Beta Without Developer Account
