A new (additional) driver increases their perceived risk irrespective of her driving record and consequently they can make a charge. You might have more of a complaint if you were exchanging a high-risk driver for a lower risk driver but they're entitled to levy a charge for adding an additional one. Whether that charge is fair or reasonable is open to debate but this is not at a level at which the ombudsman will have any interest.
