There are 3 things needed for the egr to work. It needs exhaust gases, a good vacuum source and control from the computer.
Hopefully they checked all these for this repair.
I never give the advice of driving 100 miles for the light to reset. The tech doing the job re sets the light and does a drive cycle to verify the repair. This is what you pay for, not you having to performing anything.
It is not dangerous to drive as long as that was the only code. I would return to the shop and have them do the repair correctly and complete the job.
