Engine management light - can I still drive?

My engine management light came on yesterday. Id driven up the M5 from Exeter to Bristol at high speed but no high revs. A couple of times I wondered if I could see black smoke but everyone was throwing up salt spray so I couldnt really tell.

The light came on when I was urban driving round Bristol. Im supposed to be driving back down tomorrow.

Can I get it looked at when I get back home or is it something I need to get sorted before I leave Bristol?

P.s. I dont know any Bristol garages and I have no money.

Welcome to the forum

Theoretically, you can do whatever you like, but you should at least get the codes read to find out what issue the car is seeing before you make a decision.
Without knowing what error the ECU is seeing, telling you whether or not you should be driving it will be pure guess work.
