The sidebar is created by your theme, when you create a page/post, check on the side if you can change the template, must have one called default and them look for one called full width... If not, you need to edit your theme and remove the code <?php get_sidebar(); ?> or create a new page, call it full-width.php and remove the code.
The risk with that, is when the theme is updated, it's going to over write your change. Better to have a theme with the right template...

Be sure you are logged innto the admin section.

Do what itinmind just pointed out,   go into "pages" choose "edit" on one of the pages,  on the right side should be a "template" dropdown, choose "Full width Page Template, no sidebar"

Do this to whatever pages that you don't want a sidebar
