It has been happening simce i bought the car in early January.

If this is left as is (my MOT is due next month) will it do any damage to the car at all. I woudl rather fit it in with the MOT than having to do it myself, but at the same time do not want to compromise the car through waiting...

I also heard that the engine light comes on due to the EGR needing a change...
If the EGR is your problem you will not do any damage by leaving it. EGR is Exhaust Gas Recirculation. It allows some of the exhaust from combustion back into the inlet manifold to be combusted a second time. This is purely cleaner emmissions.
