This paper proposes tests for equality of intercepts of two simple regression models when non-sample prior information (NSPI) is available on the equality of two slopes. For three different scenarios on the values of the slope, namely (i) unknown (unspecified), (ii) known (specified), and (iii) suspected, we derive the unrestricted test (UT), restricted test (RT) and pre-test test (PTT) for testing equality of intercepts. The test statistics, their sampling distributions, and power functions of the tests are obtained. Comparison of power function and size of the tests reveal that the PTT has a reasonable dominance over the UT and RT.
